ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 




President's Message 



Today, when higher education has become the primary route to 
success in our society, the mission of Armstrong Atlantic State Univer- 
sity has never been more important. As a place where learning comes 
first, A ASU offers a thriving environment for personal and intellectual 
growth. The excitement on campus is tangible: new facilities and 
programs are underway; students and professors are energized; and 
an ambitious agenda for the future has been set. 

As we stand at the new millennium, AASU is well-positioned. 
Members of our faculty continue to earn national recognition as 
teachers, researchers, authors, and scholars. AASU alumni are leaders 
in their communities. Service to students permeates the campus. 

Over the years I have heard from a number of former students who 
attribute their achievements to their Armstrong experience. Their 
stories reflect the spirit of what makes our institution so valuable. I 
encourage you to talk to some of those alumni. Their heartfelt words 
sum up the beauty — and often life-changing power — of a college 
education.

and creative endeavors; and by bringing these resources to bear on the economic development 
of the state and the continuing education of citizens through public service. 

While the core teaching, research and scholarship, and service functions differ by 
institutional type, the campus life of every institution in the University System of 
Georgia will be characterized by: 

• a supportive campus climate, necessary services, and leadership and development 
opportunities, all to educate the whole person and meet the needs of students, faculty,

• collaborative relationships with other University System of Georgia institutions, 
State agencies, local schools and technical institutes, and business and industry,

10 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



The primary mission of Armstrong Atlantic State University is to foster in its students 
abilities essential to being knowledgeable, thoughtful, responsible, and creative mem- 
bers of society. For its population of traditional and nontraditional students, Armstrong 
Atlantic strives to promote academic excellence and provide appropriate access to its 
programs, including magnet offerings in health professions, teacher education, public 
history, criminal justice, and transfer programs in engineering studies. Moreover, 
Armstrong Atlantic shall: 

• Augment traditional classroom instruction and provide student-centered learning 
through the integration of new technologies and innovative methods of course delivery; 

• Improve and expand access through distance learning, flexible course scheduling, 
and development of off-campus sites; 

• Respond to student needs through accessible faculty and administrators, an effective 
student-teacher ratio, and appropriate learning support; 

• Foster a deepened understanding of diverse world views and experiences through 
the examination of multicultural and international perspectives across the curricu- 
lum and activities that encourage respect for human worth; 

• Offer activities to students that help to prepare them for the work place or for further 
study through a wide array of leadership programs, experiential training, and 
entrepreneurial opportunities; 

• Optimize resources and expand educational opportunities for citizens throughout

In shaping its vision for the twenty-first century, Armstrong Atlantic has assumed a 
leadership role in the application and integration of new educational technologies. The 
institution aspires to build upon its already excellent curricular and urban oriented 
research programs and expand its magnet offerings, especially in the sciences. A planned 
student body profile based on admissions, progressions, and graduation expectations 
shall enhance institutional effectiveness. Finally, Armstrong Atlantic assumes responsi- 
bility for initiating collaborative efforts and for attracting and cultivating credit and 
non-credit programs designed to meet societal needs in such areas as economic develop- 
ment, health, cultural life, and technological advancement. 

Approved by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia - June, 1996 

Location 

Armstrong students find much to enjoy about living in the cosmopolitan city of 
Savannah, the major urban area (pop. 200,000) in coastal Georgia. The college's 250 acre 
campus is located in a residential area of the city which promotes a feeling of freedom and 
security on campus. 

Savannah, Georgia's founding city, has all the historic and cultural variety of a 
metropolitan city with the added advantage of the ocean at its back door. A temperate 
climate encourages outdoor activities and recreation year round. Beach and river outings 
include sailing, boating, water skiing, sunning and beachcombing. Golf, tennis, fishing 
and hunting are also popular. 

A resident symphony orchestra, dance and theatre groups, and visiting entertain- 
ment groups regularly perform at the Civic Center. Special celebrations and other 
festivals are scheduled throughout the year. 

The historic past lives in harmony with today's progress in Savannah. As a living 
laboratory for history, Savannah is unsurpassed yet the Savannah port is one of the 
busiest on the Atlantic coast. 

Community oriented leisure activities complement on-campus happenings. A grow- 
ing NCAA intercollegiate athletic program, active intramurals, concerts, plays and 
special entertainment mean lots to do without leaving campus.

Regents Engineering Transfer Program 

The Regents Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) is a cooperative program between 
Armstrong Atlantic State University and Georgia Institute of Technology. This program 
allows qualified students to attend Armstrong Atlantic for the first two years of 
engineering studies then transfer to Georgia Tech to complete their bachelor of engineer- 
ing degree. RETP students transferring to Georgia Tech compete on a equal basis with 
Georgia Tech students at the junior academic level. To be admitted as an RETP student, 
the applicant must meet the academic requirements set for the program, and be a U.S. 
citizen with Georgia residency. Specific information on requirements for admission is 
available under the admissions section of this catalog or from the Engineering Studies 
Program Coordinator in the Department of Chemistry and Physics. 

Dual-Degree Programs 

Armstrong Atlantic State University has dual-degree programs in engineering with 
the Georgia Institute of Technology, Auburn University, Clemson University, Missis- 
sippi State University, and the University of Florida. Upon completion of the first three 
years of academic work at Armstrong, the student may enroll for two subsequent years 
at one of the participating schools. Upon completing the requirements of the two 
cooperating schools, the student will receive a baccalaureate degree from Armstrong 
Atlantic State University and a baccalaureate degree in the chosen field of engineering 
from the second school. 

The Assistant Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences is the Armstrong Atlantic 
coordinator of these dual-degree programs and should be contacted for additional 
information. 

A dual-degree program in forestry and environmental management with Duke 
University is available. Students complete three years of academic work at Armstrong 
Atlantic State University, then enroll for two subsequent years at Duke University. 
Students who successfully complete the program receive a Bachelor of Science in biology 
from Armstrong Atlantic State University and a Masters of Science degree in either 
forestry or environmental management from Duke University. The Head of the Depart- 
ment of Biology should be contacted for additional information. 

Cooperative Education Program 

In the cooperative education program students typically alternate semesters between 
college and work. This program offers students valuable practical experience as well as 
financial assistance in the form of compensation from the firms that employ them. 



14 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



Cooperative opportunities are available to students in computer science, chemistry and 
engineering, but are not limited to these majors. Cooperative students must register for 
Cooperative Education Program (CEP 100) for semesters in which they work. This course 
carries no credit and there is no charge for registration. Students interested in applying 
for admission to the Cooperative Education program should contact the head of their 
major department and the Director of Volunteer and Service Learning, who is the 
director of this program. 

Evening and Weekend Programs 

To accommodate students who are employed during the day, all core curriculum 
courses and many upper-division courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening. 
At present, the following degree programs are available to students who attend classes 
exclusively in the evening: 

Associate in Arts, Associate in Criminal Justice; 

Baccalaureate degree programs in English (communications), computer science, 
criminal justice, economics, English, general studies, history, mathematics, politi- 
cal science, public administration and psychology. 
Although evening offerings are expanded each year, it generally takes students 
longer to complete degree requirements by attending evening classes exclusively than it 
does by attending day classes or a combination of day, evening, and weekend classes. 
Evening course offerings are supplemented by a growing weekend program of 
selected core curriculum courses in such fields as art, composition, economics, history, 
speech communications, philosophy, physical education, physical science, political 
science, psychology, and sociology. The weekend program now attracts upwards of 350 
students every term. The Office of Weekend and Off-Campus Programs oversees the 
development and promotion of the evening and weekend programs. 

Off-Campus and Distance Learning Courses 

To meet particular regional needs, the university offers selected courses at various off- 
campus sites, including the Coastal Georgia Center, Liberty Center, and Brunswick 
Center. Although most of these courses are taught by university faculty at the off-campus 
sites, some may be delivered by means of interactive teleconferencing originating from 
the main campus. 

Armstrong is an active member of the Georgia Statewide Academic and Medical 
System (GSAMS). The university oversees the operations of seven interactive distance- 
learning classrooms, three of them on campus (Gamble 113, Health Professions 136, and 
University Hall 114) and others at the Brunswick Center, White Bluff Elementary School, 
the Coastal Georgia Center, and Savannah State University. In addition, the university 
is developing Internet resources to provide a new medium for learning as well as to 
supplement more traditional forms of research and instruction. 

The Brunswick Center 

The Brunswick Center is a consortium composed of Coastal Georgia Community 
College in Brunswick, Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, and Georgia 
Southern University in Statesboro. It was authorized by the Board of Regents of the 
University System of Georgia in September 1986 and was organized for the purpose of 
establishing a residence center for baccalaureate degrees. However, all three participat- 
ing institutions teach courses which apply toward the degrees, and credit earned from 
any of these colleges through the Brunswick Center is accepted as resident credit by 
Armstrong Atlantic State University. 

Degree Programs: 

The Brunswick Center offers programs of study leading to four degrees from Armstrong 
Atlantic State University: 



PROGRAMS 15

After Admission: 

Once admitted to Armstrong Atlantic State University or either of the other consor- 
tium institutions, students are allowed to take courses offered through the Brunswick 
Center by all three institutions. The senior institutions accept all course work done 
through the Brunswick Center as resident credit. Upper level courses taken by Coastal 
Georgia Community College students will be applied toward their baccalaureate de- 
grees. The Director of the Brunswick Center serves as the initial advisor for all students 
in the center. He meets with each student to outline an overall program as well as to plan 
a schedule each semester. Registration for the Brunswick Center is done through the 
Center office at the time of Coastal Georgia Community College registration. Students 
are encouraged to preregister for the next semester during the specified preregistration 
time each semester. Graduation requirements in each degree are set by Armstrong 
Atlantic State University. The respective department heads and the Registrar at AASU 
certify each candidate for graduation. All Brunswick Center students have full use of the 
Coastal Georgia Community College library and other support services of CGCC.

Student Life 

One of the primary aims of the educational mission at Armstrong Atlantic State 
University is the total development of students. This growth process is enhanced by 
integrating opportunities for social, emotional, cultural, physical and spiritual develop- 
ment in addition to intellectual growth. The Division of Student Affairs is committed to 
providing programs and services which foster an educational environment which will 
assist students in achieving their full potential. The university encourages learning 
through involvement in the residence center, student government, campus organiza- 
tions, intramurals, and more. 

Residence Life and Food Service 

The residence center, completed in September of 1985, consists of three buildings 
which house 64 students each. The apartment-style design encourages student interac- 
tion without a loss of privacy. Each two-bedroom suite, accommodating four students, 
has a bath and living room. All units are fully furnished, carpeted, and have unit- 
controlled heat and air conditioning. Phone jacks and an on-site coin laundry are added 
conveniences. Several units are equipped to accommodate students with disabilities.

ADMISSIONS 25 



In addition to meeting two of the above admissions criteria, applicants who gradu- 
ated from high school within the past five years must meet the requirements of the 
College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) of the Board of Regents. Applicants applying for 
Fall semester 1998 may have no more than three CPC deficiencies to be eligible for 
admission to the university. (See College Preparatory Curriculum under Regular Admis- 
sion) 

An applicant who does not qualify for regular admission will be given the Collegiate 
Placement Examination (CPE) in order to qualify for admission to the university. (A 
student will be given the CPE if the verbal SAT score is less than 460 (ACT English 20) 
or the math SAT score is less than 430 (ACT math 18). This examination must be taken 
before a student can register for classes at Armstrong. 

Students are required to enroll in Learning Support courses if their CPE scores fall 
below either the University System of Georgia minimum or the institutional minimum. 
They may exit the Learning Support Program: 

• by earning passing scores on all required parts of the Collegiate Placement 
Examination. 

If any required part of the CPE is not passed, the student will be required to enroll 

in the appropriate learning support course. Upon successful completion of all 

required learning support courses and passing the CPE, the student will exit the 

learning support areas (English, Reading and Math). 

Under the semester system, students are limited to a total of three attempts in each 

learning support area, including both required and voluntary participation. Students 

who do not complete the requirements for each area after a maximum of three attempts 

per area are subject to Learning Support Suspension. Contact the Office of Learning 

Support for copies of the department's policy. 

Students who are required to enroll in learning support classes must have a schedule 
of classes approved by the Learning Support Counselor or by an advisor within that 
department each term the student registers. 

Special Admission Categories

Delayed admission (Non-traditional) applicants are defined as students who 

• Have been out of high school at least five years or whose high school class 
graduated at least five years ago. 

• Hold a high school diploma from an accredited or approved high school as 
specified or have satisfactorily completed the GED.

will be required to take the Collegiate Placement Examination and complete any learning 
support requirements. 

Early Admission 

Armstrong Atlantic State University offers an early admission program for those 
students who have completed their junior year in high school and who have demon- 
strated outstanding academic potential. The criteria for admission to this program are 
the same as those listed for the Joint Enrollment Program. For further information on this 
program, prospective applicants must consult with their high school counselors. 

Units of the University System of Georgia are prohibited from accepting transfer 
credit awarded by any college or university to students enrolled in joint high school and 



26 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



college enrollment programs unless those students have a minimum SAT score of 970 
and a high school Grade Point Average of 3.00 (B) on a 4.00 scale. 

International Student Admissions 

Admission of international students is based on academic admissibility, English 
proficiency, and proof of financial means to study in the United States. International 
applicants must document their ability to meet the financial requirements for attendance 
as required by U.S. Immigration regulations. It is recommended that international 
students begin their attendance at the university in the fall semester. The university also 
recommends that international students attend an ESL language center prior to enroll- 
ment. Please contact the Office of Admissions by writing to Armstrong Atlantic State 
University, International Admissions, 11935 Abercorn St., Savannah, GA 31419-1997, or 
call 912-927-5277 to receive an admissions packet or to ask questions. 

International students must meet the following requirements before application is 
made: 

1. International students must have completed the equivalent of graduation from a 
U.S. high school. However, College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) requirements 
do not apply to these students. 

2. Each applicant must have official secondary (high school) or post secondary 
(college or university) credentials, certificates, or diplomas mailed to the Office of 
Admissions at Armstrong Atlantic. Official documents must bear authoritative 
signatures, seals and /or stamps and should be sent by the institution responsible 
for issuing such documents. In cases where it is impossible for these credentials to 
be sent from the institution or only one set of originals is available to students, they 
should forward an "attested" copy of the original. The attestation must be done by 
a proper institution official or by the Ministry of Education in the home country. 
A certified original translation must accompany all documents not printed in 
English. 

Transfer applicants with credentials from institutions outside of the United States 
are required to have a course by course evaluation from a professional evaluation 
agency before they are eligible for admission to the university. Please contact the 
Office of Admissions for an evaluation application. 

3. Each applicant must provide official scores of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) 
or The American College Testing Program (ACT). 

4. A student whose native language is not English must take the Test of English as a 
Foreign Language (TOEFL) and score a minimum of 500 for consideration for 
admission to the university. The TOEFL is not a substitution for the SAT or ACT. 

5. In addition to meeting the regular admission requirements, international appli- 
cants who need a student visa must show ability to meet financial obligations of 
tuition, fees, and living expenses before a Certificate of Eligibility (1-20 AB) and an 
acceptance letter will be issued. Current (less than one year old) letters of financial 
support must accompany the Statement of Financial Resources. Having sufficient 
funds for the cost of living and educational expenses is required by U.S. Immigra- 
tion regulations and is also necessary because other than competitive scholarships 
for which students must qualify, there is no financial aid available for international 
students at Armstrong Atlantic State University. International students on non- 
immigrant visas are not eligible for state or federally-funded loans or scholarships 
in the United States. 

6. Health insurance is mandatory for all international students on non-immigrant 
visas enrolled at Armstrong Atlantic State University. 



ADMISSIONS 27 



After completion of application form and submission of all required records, the 
university will make a decision on the application. If an application is approved, the 
university will send an 1-20 form (which the international student will use to obtain a 
student visa). 

Joint Enrollment Admission 

Through this program for superior high school juniors and seniors, students may 
complete more than two-thirds of the freshman year of college before beginning a regular 
college career. Students in this program may enroll for college credit in a maximum of 
two courses each term while completing their junior or senior year of high school. 

Students forfeit the privilege of this program if they receive a college course grade 
below C or their high school average in academic courses falls below B in any term. The 
university will consider students for this program only upon written recommendation 
of their high school principals or counselors. 

Applicants must meet freshman admission requirements and the following criteria to 
be eligible for Joint Enrollment admission. 

• Minimum Scholastic Aptitude Test score of 970 (combined verbal and mathemat- 
ics sections) or the ACT composite no less than 21; 

• Minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 or a numerical 
average of 80 or higher in academic subjects; . 

• Written recommendation from the high school principal or counselor; 

• Written consent of parent or guardian (if the student is a minor); 

• Completion of the University System of Georgia College Preparatory Curriculum 
requirements with the following exceptions: 

- Students with SAT verbal scores of at least 530 (or ACT English of at least 
23) who have not completed the final unit of high school English and /or 
social studies may be permitted to fulfill these high school requirements 
with the appropriate college courses taken through the joint enrollment 
program. 

- Students who have not completed the College Preparatory Curriculum require- 
ments may be admitted through the joint enrollment program if they are 
enrolled in the necessary high school courses and scheduled to complete the 
requirements by the end of their senior year. 

With the exception of English and social studies courses taken by students with SAT 
verbal scores of at least 530 (or ACT English of at least 23), a college course may not be 
used to fulfill both high school College Preparatory Curriculum requirements and 
college degree requirements. 

Non-Degree Student Admission 

Applicants who have never attended college and who wish to pursue courses for 
personal enrichment or advancement may be admitted as non-degree students by 
permission of the Director of Admissions. To be considered, an applicant must possess 
a high school diploma (or have completed the GED satisfactorily) and have been out of 
high school for a period of seven or more years. 

The SAT /ACT test is not required; however, students must take the Collegiate 
Placement Examination. Applicants admitted as non-degree students may earn a maxi- 
mum of ten semester credit hours (including institutional credit) before being required 
to fulfill any learning support requirements. To enter a degree program, fulfillment of all 
beginning freshman requirements is necessary. A non-degree student must satisfy all 
prerequisites before enrolling in a course. 

Outstanding Students Admission 

Applicants who demonstrate very high academic ability by achieving a composite 
SAT I (verbal -i-math) score in the upper five percent of national college-bound seniors 



28 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



according to the most recent report from the College Board and who show other evidence 
of college readiness will be admitted as Outstanding Students. (An ACT score which is 
equivalent to this SAT I score can also be used) Students admitted under this admissions 
category are not required to meet the Freshman Index admissions requirement. Out- 
standing Students must satisfy any College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) deficiencies 
in areas other than English or mathematics through college level course work. 

Readmission 

Students who have not been enrolled at Armstrong for three consecutive semesters 
must apply for readmission on a form provided by the Office of the Registrar. Former 
students who have not attended another college since leaving Armstrong may be 
readmitted, provided they are not on suspension at the time they wish to reenter. Former 
students who have attended another college since leaving Armstrong must meet transfer 
admission requirements as listed in the catalog in effect at the time of return. All 
readmitted students must follow semester requirements. 

Transfer Admission 

An applicant who has previously attended a regionally accredited institution of 
higher education is considered a transfer student and must meet transfer admission 
requirements. 

A transfer applicant who has completed fewer than 30 transferable semester hours (45 
quarter hours) of core curriculum or whose only attendance has been at a regionally 
accredited technical college in a "Non-College Transfer Program" will be required to 
meet freshman admission requirements (including the submission of official transcripts 
from each institution attended). Applicants who graduated from high school within the 
past five years are also required to meet College Preparatory Curriculum Requirements 
(CPC). Transfer students who transfer from another University System of Georgia 
institution will retain their College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) requirements as 
determined by the sending institution. 

A transfer applicant will not be considered for admission unless the transcript of the 
college or university last attended indicates that the student is academically eligible to 
return to that institution. Any transfer applicant who is not academically eligible to 
return to the last institution attended will be denied admission to the university. Transfer 
applicants may appeal this decision by completing an Appeal Form and submitting this 
form to the Dean of Academic and Enrollment Services. The Admissions and Academic 
Standing Committee meets each term to review admission appeals. 

Academic Standing and Grade Calculations 

Armstrong's Academic Standing policy will be used to determine an applicant's 
entering academic standing. Transfer applicants who are academically eligible to return 
to the college or university last attended yet fall below the required Overall Grade Point 
Average (GPA) as indicated by Armstrong's Academic Standing Policy will be admitted 
on Good Standing with Warning. Transfer students admitted to the university by 
permission of the Admissions and Academic Standing Committee will enter on Aca- 
demic Probation. Transfer applicants, from within the University System of Georgia, 
who have learning support requirements, but have not yet exited the required areas of 
learning support, will not be considered for admission. Transfer applicants, from outside 
the University System of Georgia, with at least 30 semester hours of transferrable core 
curriculum with a 2.0 overall grade point average are not required to take the College 
Placement Examination. 

To be eligible for continued enrollment, all transfer students are expected to maintain 
or exceed the required Overall Grade Point Average (GPA) as indicated by Armstrong's 
Academic Standing policy. 



ADMISSIONS 29 



All previous college credit is included in the calculation of a student's Overall Grade 
Point Average at Armstrong Atlantic State University (including D and F grades). Letter 
grades transfer at face value. Armstrong does not recognize + or - indicators when 
transferring credit from another institution. Incomplete grades also transfer and remain 
as a grade of "I" until a grade change to remove the incomplete is received from the 
previous institution, the course is repeated or the previous institution's policy indicates 
that there is no penalty for an incomplete. "I" grades will revert to an "F" in accordance 
with university policy if not resolved by midterm of the second term of attendance at 
Armstrong. College credit is not awarded for pre-college level and remedial courses, 
courses taken for diploma or certification purposes, continuing education courses or 
vocational courses. Transfer quarter hours will be converted to semester hours at a ratio 
of 1:1.5 (i.e., 5 quarter hours will convert to 3.3 semester hours). 

Awarding of Transfer Credit 

The university makes every effort to transfer credit for academic work completed at 
other institutions. All transfer applicants must provide the Office of Admissions with an 
official transcript of all credit earned at each previously attended college or university, 
regardless of the transferability of credits. An official evaluation of acceptable college 
credit awarded will be mailed to transfer students when all official transcripts have been 
received from each institution previously attended. This Student Transfer Evaluation 
will be completed prior to or during the student's first term of attendance. Transfer credit 
may be accepted from degree granting institutions that are accredited at the collegiate 
level by their appropriate regional accrediting agency. No transfer credit will be 
awarded from institutions that are not regionally accredited. Students may appeal 
individual course decisions. 

Applicants transferring from an institution which is not a member of a regional 
accrediting agency must achieve a "C" average on their first fifteen semester hours of 
work at Armstrong in order to be eligible to continue. At that point, the student may 
request a review of prior credit earned at a nonaccredited institution as it would apply 
to a chosen degree program. This review process begins in Office of the Registrar. In 
certain areas, students may be required to validate credits by examination. In computing 
cumulative grade point averages, only the work attempted at Armstrong will be 
considered. 

Credit earned in a designated college transfer program from which the student 
graduated at an accredited technical college will be evaluated on a course by course basis, 
if applicable to specific degree program requirements. This transfer practice may be 
further defined by specific articulation agreements with individual technical schools. 

Armstrong Atlantic State University reserves the right to refuse to accept any or all of 
the credits from any high school or other institution, notwithstanding its accredited 
status, when the university determines, through investigation or otherwise that the 
quality of instruction at such high school or institution is, for any reason, deficient or 
unsatisfactory. The judgment of the university on this question will be final. 

Meeting Degree Requirements 

Transfer students must meet all applicable requirements under the General Degree 
Requirements to graduate from Armstrong Atlantic State University. 

If Core Curriculum requirements in Areas A,B,C,D or E have been completed at 
another University System of Georgia institution, each completed area will be accepted 
as having met the respective area requirement at Armstrong. A department may require 
students to enroll in a core course that is required for a specific major if that course was 
not taken to satisfy the core area requirement. 

Transfer students from outside the University System of Georgia who have not yet 
completed the required English composition courses in Area A of the Core Curriculum 
should make an appointment to meet with the Composition Coordinator for an English 



30 



ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



Placement Interview prior to their first registration. The coordinator will assist the 
student in determining placement in the appropriate composition course(s), evaluating 
other English course credits, and reviewing the Regents' Test requirement. 

Transfer students from outside the University System of Georgia must exhibit 
satisfactory knowledge of Georgia government through a test on the Georgia Constitu- 
tion and Government or by satisfactorily completing an equivalent course. This test is 
given each term on campus. Completion of American Government at a non-system 
institution does not normally satisfy this requirement. 

Transfer of Non-Traditional Credit

These guidelines are subject to change without notice. 

Academic departments select the examinations and determine the passing scores which follow 
the test titles. The letter C following a score denotes conditional credit and means that an 
additional requirement must be satisfied before credit hours will be awarded. For example, the 
award of credit in American Government is contingent upon passing a local test on Georgia 
government, as well as an AP or CLEP test. The credit hours awarded are the same as those earned 
by students who complete the equivalent course(s). The letter-grade K is used to identify credit 
by examination and has no effect on the academic grade point average. The Office of the Registrar 
adds courses and credit hours to the academic records of enrolled students. A brochure published 
by the Division of Student Affairs lists equivalent courses, any conditions for award of credit, and 
test dates. 

For additional information, please make inquiry to the Office of Admissions or the 
Division of Student Affairs.

Fees are charged at either the Undergraduate or Graduate rate based upon the student 
classification in the Student Information System. Non-resident tuition is charged to 
students who are not classified as Georgia residents. 

Students in specified courses, i.e. applied music and scuba diving, may be subject to 
additional fees. 

Non-resident tuition is waived for active duty military personnel and their depen- 
dents stationed in Georgia (except military personnel assigned to this institution for 
educational purposes). Documentation must be presented to the Registrar's office. 

On-campus students pay an activity fee and an athletic fee each semester, regardless 
of the number of hours enrolled. 

Students registered only for off-campus courses do not pay student activity or athletic 
fees. Students registered for a combination of on- and off-campus courses do pay student 
activity and athletic fees. 

Tuition and fees are waived for Georgia residents who present written documenta- 
tion to the Registrar's office that they are 62 years of age or older. 

Contact the Registrar's office for a detailed fee information sheet. 

Regents' Policies Governing Residency Requirements 

To be considered a legal resident of Georgia, the applicant must establish the 
following facts to the satisfaction of the Registrar. 

1 . (a) If a person is 18 years of age or older, he or she may register as an in-state student 
only upon a showing that he or she has been a legal resident of Georgia for a period 
of at least twelve months immediately preceding the date of registration. 



FINANCIAL INFORMATION 37 



(b) No emancipated minor or other person 18 years of age or older shall be deemed 
to have gained or acquired in-state status for tuition purposes while attending any 
educational institution in this State, in the absence of a clear demonstration that he 
or she has in fact established legal residence in this State. 

2. If a person is under 1 8 years of age, he or she may register as an in-state student only 
upon a showing that his or her supporting parent or guardian has been a legal 
resident of Georgia for a period of at least twelve months immediately preceding 
the date of registration. 

3. If a parent or legal guardian of a minor changes his or her legal residence to another 
state following a period of legal residence in Georgia, the minor may continue to 
take courses for a period of twelve consecutive months on the payment of in-state 
tuition. After the expiration of the twelve month period, the student may continue 
his or her registration only upon the payment of fees at the non-resident rate. 

4. In the event that a legal resident of Georgia is appointed as guardian of a non- 
resident minor, such minor will not be permitted to register as an resident student 
until the expiration of one year from the date of court appointment, and then only 
upon a proper showing that such appointment was not made to avoid payment of 
the non-resident fees. 

5. Aliens shall be classified as non-resident students provided, however, that an alien 
who is living in this country under an immigration document permitting indefinite 
or permanent residence shall have the same privilege of qualifying for resident 
tuition as a citizen of the United States. 

6. Waivers: An institution may waive non-resident tuition for: 

(a) non-resident students who are financially dependent upon a parent, parents or 
spouse who has been a legal resident of Georgia for at least twelve consecutive 
months immediately preceding the date of registration; provided, however, 
that such financial dependence shall have existed for at least twelve consecutive 
months immediately preceding the date of registration. 

(b) international students, selected by the institutional president or their autho- 
rized representative, provided that the number of such waivers in effect does 
not exceed one percent of the equivalent full-time students enrolled at the 
institution in the fall semester immediately preceding the semester for which 
the out-of-state tuition is to be waived. 

(c) full-time employees of the University System, their spouses, and their depen- 
dent children. 

(d)full-time teachers in the public schools of Georgia or in the programs of the State 
Board of Technical and Adult Education and their dependent children. Teach- 
ers employed full-time on military bases in Georgia shall also qualify for this 
waiver; 

(e) career consular officers and their dependents who are citizens of the foreign 
nation which their consular office represents, and who are stationed and living 
in Georgia under orders of their respective governments. This waiver shall 
apply only to those consular officers whose nations operate on the principle of 
educational reciprocity with the United States. 

(f) military personnel and their dependents stationed in Georgia and on active 
duty unless such military personnel are assigned as students to System institu- 
tions for educational purposes. 

(g) students who are legal residents of non-resident counties bordering on Georgia 
counties in which an institution of the University System is located and who are 
enrolled in said institution. 



38 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY

The applied music fee is refundable only if the student does not meet the first 
scheduled lesson. 

Short Courses (Non-Credit) 

Fees are announced for each semester when the course is scheduled by the university. 
Students who formally withdraw from a short course or conference up to twenty-four 
hours prior to the first class meeting will receive a full refund of fees paid. No refunds 
will be made for withdrawals after the first class meeting. Fees paid for courses or 
conferences cancelled by the Office of Continuing Education will be refunded 100%. 
Refund checks will be mailed approximately four weeks after the approved withdrawal 
form is received by Financial Services. 

Refund Policy 

Refund of tuition and fees may be requested only upon written application for 
withdrawal from school. The withdrawal form should be completed in the Office of 
Student Affairs. NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE TO STUDENTS DROPPING A COURSE. 
Refunds for withdrawals, academic suspension, and cancelled classes will be available 
at the Cashier's office starting the ninth week of the semester. They will be mailed if not 
picked up by the eleventh week of the semester. 

The refund schedule is as follows:

After first 10 percent of enrollment through the end 

of first 25 percent of enrollment 50% 
After first 25 percent of enrollment through the end 

of first 50 percent of enrollment 25%

Enrollment is defined as the scheduled number of official class days for that semester. 
Refunds are based on the withdrawal date of the semester's class days, not how many 
times individual classes have met. 

Students attending for the first time who receive assistance under Title IV of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended are entitled to a pro-rata refund of that portion 
of the tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges assessed the student by the 
institution equal to that portion of the period of enrollment for which the student has 
been charged that remains on the last day of attendance by the student up to the sixty 
percent (60%) point (in time) in the period of enrollment. 

A refund of all semester non-resident tuition, tuition, and other mandatory fees shall 
be made in the event of the death of a student at any time during an academic semester. 

Summer Term Refunds 

Due to the varying lengths of courses offered during the summer, refunds are based 
upon the individual course length. Due to the multiple lengths of summer term classes, 
refunds for withdrawals and cancelled classes will be mailed at the end of the semester. 



40 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 

Dormitory Deposit Refunds 

Refunds of the dorm deposit (less damages) will be available four weeks after 
Financial Services is notified by Student Affairs. 

Returned Check Policy 

Students whose checks are returned to the university unpaid by their banks will be 
notified by Financial Services to pay the amount due. Student checks used for book- 
store and other purchases will be assessed a service charge of $25.00 or 5% of the check, 
whichever is greater. Student checks used for tuition and fees will be assessed the 
service charge plus the late registration fee. Checks returned because of bank errors 
will be redeposited after written notification is received from the bank and a $25.00 
service charge is paid by the student. No late registration fee is assessed for checks 
returned because of a bank error. Students should request reimbursement of the 
service charge from their bank. A stop payment of a check does not constitute a formal 
withdrawal and is considered a returned check. Legal means will be used to collect 
returned checks. Writing a non-sufficient funds check or stopping payment on a check 
does not cancel registration. Students whose check is returned for non-sufficient funds 
or who stop payment on a check must honor the check and pay the service charges 
before withdrawing from school. After honoring a returned or stop payment check and 
formally withdrawing in the Division of Student Affairs the student will receive a 
refund. 

Payments 

Credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) may be used to pay tuition for students who 
participate in advanced registration, registration, or late registration. Make payments at 
the front desk in the lobby of the Administration Building. Partial payments, i.e., part 
credit card /part cash or check, are not accepted. The person whose credit card is being 
used to pay tuition must be present to sign the charge slip. 

Cash and check payments are accepted at the cashier's window in the Administra- 
tion Building. Drop boxes are also available for check payments. Checks sent by mail 
should be made payable to Armstrong Atlantic State University and addressed to the 
Financial Services - Tuition Payments, Armstrong Atlantic State University, 11935 
Abercorn Street, Savannah, GA 31419. Your check and schedule /bill must be pre- 
sented with payment, mailed or attached when using the drop boxes. The total 
amount due on the schedule/bill (including encumbrances) must be paid in order for 
the university to accept payment. (Encumbrances are other debts owed by the 
student to the university.) Only full payments will be accepted. If you are making a 
partial payment by check and the rest by cash, you must go to the cashier's line with 
both check and cash. Students who have financial aid and pay the balance with cash/ 
check must pay their fees at the cashier's table during regular registration. Students 
who mail their schedule /bill and check to Financial Services cannot be guaranteed 
enrollment unless their envelope is sent by registered mail and is received by 
Financial Services by the appropriate deadline. Checks submitted with old schedule/ 
bills, without schedule/bills, check amounts less than total fees due, incomplete checks, 
counter checks, two-party checks, or post-dated checks will be mailed back to the 
student. Do not submit a check that you know will be returned by your bank. 
Payments for returned checks will be accepted only in cash, cashier's check, or money 
order. The student's social security number should be listed on the check. Only 
checks drawn on U.S. banks will be accepted. Dormitory students can use the drop 
box procedure for dorm payments by check and should specify as such on their 
checks. 



FINANCIAL INFORMATION 41 



Financial Obligations 

Any student delinquent in the payment of any financial obligation to the university 
will have grade reports and transcripts of records held. Grade reports and transcripts 
will not be released nor will the student be allowed to register at the university until all 
financial obligations are met. Fees for each semester are to be paid in full at the time of 
registration. 

Financial Aid Student Payment 

Students who have financial aid will have their aid applied directly to the student 
account. This will be done periodically throughout the semester as student's aid is 
approved. "Difference" checks (a result of financial aid less tuition and other fees) will 
be available weekly throughout the semester as financial aid is processed. 

Students who do not pre-register or do not complete financial aid paperwork on time 
will have their "difference" check delayed. In order to receive a "difference" check as 
soon as possible, students must advance register and have all financial aid paperwork 
completed on time. 

To pick up difference checks, students must have a valid photo ID with their social 
security number. A driver's license or student ID is acceptable. Students whose driver's 
license number does not match that of their social security number must have a social 
security card. Difference checks will be mailed if not picked up after two weeks. 

Financial aid students who advance register, but whose aid does not exceed fees, 
should submit the remaining payment on registration day. 

Financial aid students who register and do not attend classes will have their aid 
applied and receive a grade. If their charges exceed aid, they will be billed for the unpaid 
amount. Financial aid students who register and decide not to attend classes should 
formally withdraw from school in the Division of Student Affairs. 

Students whose financial aid is not completed prior to registration should be prepared 
to pay fees themselves and be reimbursed later in the semester.

of the University System of Georgia. There are no deferments of fees or payment plans. 

Students whose fees were paid by financial aid and who withdraw from school will have 
their refund returned to the source based upon federal regulations and university policy. 

Students who add a class, do not pay the additional fees, and do not officially drop the 
course, will be billed for the course and will receive a grade. 

The university reserves the right to apply all payments or financial aid to any unpaid 
student balances. 

Brunswick Center students should consult with Center staff for specific guidelines 
and procedures. 

Financial aid students who enroll for hours different from their aid-based hours will 
not receive any difference check until late in the semester.

Financial Aid 

Governing Principles 

The Financial Aid Office is especially concerned with students who need financial 
assistance to attend Armstrong Atlantic State University. The primary responsibility for 
financing a college education is the inherent obligation of the student and his / her family. 
Financial aid is available to supplement the family's contribution and is provided 
through a combination of sources including scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time 
employment. Either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or the Renewal Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid must be used to help determine the student's 
eligibility for HOPE Scholarship, PELL Grants, SEOG, and Student Loans. Information 
used in determining eligibility includes family income, assets, the number of family 
members, number in college, etc. The university will attempt to assist the student with 
the difference between the total expected family contribution and the cost of attending 
college. Any student admitted to, or attending Armstrong Atlantic State University is 
encouraged to apply for financial aid. 

General Information 

The Financial Aid Office is committed to providing the quickest and most accurate 
application method possible. Speed and accuracy are achieved through the electronic 
processing of applications versus the student mailing the application. 

Effective immediately, students can process their own Free Application for Federal 
Student Aid (FAFSA) via the World Wide Web. The following is needed: 

1) Domestic version of Netscape Navigator 3.0 or higher. 

2) a printer to print a signature page, which must be mailed to the Federal Department 

of Education. 

The address for sending the FAFSA is: 

http:/ / www.fafsa.ed.gov/ 

Students can obtain further information at: 

http: / / www.ed.gov / offices / OPE / Students 

Computers and printers will be available in the Memorial College Center for students 
to enter their information and to print out their signature page. 

Armstrong's institutional TITLE IV SCHOOL CODE is: 001546 this will be needed on 
the FAFSA. 

Students who do not wish to process their FAFSA's via the world wide web can mail 
them to the Central Processor in the envelope provided. 

The priority deadline for submitting the completed and signed application is March 
15, (or 5 months prior to the beginning of any term.) 

The federal processor will send a Student Aid Report or an Information Acknowledg- 
ment Student Aid Report to the student. It is the student's responsibility to review the 
information on the Student Aid Report and if items are discovered to be incorrect the 
Financial Aid Office must be notified immediately. If the Financial Aid Office does not 
hear otherwise from the student, it will assume that all information is correct. The 
Financial Aid Office is not responsible for delays caused by data that was either reported 
inaccurately or if the student does not notify the office of an error. Students who meet the 
March 15 priority deadline will have ample time to make any corrections necessary to 
their applications. 

NOTE: Students are no longer required to turn in a copy of their Student Aid Report 
to the Financial Aid Office. The Financial Aid Office will now obtain the results of your 
application electronically from the Federal Processor, providing AASU is listed on the 
FAFSA as a college choice. 

Student financial aid is most frequently awarded to eligible students on the basis of 
need or merit. Merit is determined by the entity who is providing the money to be 



44 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



awarded (i.e., the State of Georgia, Armstrong Atlantic State University, private donors). 
Need is determined by the Federal Government via the student completing the Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid. The process involves a government analysis of the 
data provided by the student's family or, if independent, by the student. This analysis is 
transmitted to the Financial Aid Office where it is compared with the cost of education 
for the appropriate classification of student. The formula applied is; Cost of Education 
minus Expected Family Contribution equals Need (COA - EFC = Need). If the family 
contribution is less than the cost of education, financial need has been established. 

In general, students who apply by the priority deadline (March 15) have greater 
opportunity to receive a variety of financial assistance than those who apply after the 
deadline. Due to the fact that certain funds' are limited, the Financial Aid Office will 
award its yearly allocation of those funds to students who met the priority deadline and 
demonstrate the greatest need. For this reason, students are encouraged to apply as early 
in the year as possible. 

The Financial Aid Office is interested in helping students find ways to finance their 
education. The application and awards process, however, is heavily regulated by federal 
and state law and as a result the process takes time. As many as 30% of Armstrong 
Atlantic State University students may be selected for a process called verification. The 
Financial Aid Office does not know who will be selected at the time the student applies 
for aid. All students should be prepared to supply a signed copy of their 1997 Federal 
Income Tax Return and a completed Verification Worksheet to the Financial Aid Office. 
Students who are not considered independent by the Federal government would also 
need to submit a signed copy of their parents' 1997 Federal Income Tax Return. The 
Financial Aid Office may also require a variety of other documents before a student can 
be awarded. Please respond quickly and accurately to any and all requests for documen- 
tation from the Financial Aid Office. 

Only by meeting the priority deadline of March 15, can students expect to have funds 
available at the beginning of Fall Semester 1998. Students who do not meet this deadline 
will be required to pay their own fees for Fall Semester 1998. Please keep in mind that 
although we are here to help you, we are not responsible for delays caused by inaccurate 
or incomplete applications and files. 

Application Information 

An applicant for student financial aid must: 

1. Be enrolled or accepted for enrollment at Armstrong Atlantic State University. 

2. Complete an Armstrong Application for Financial Aid. 

3. Complete and submit a singed FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA to the Central Processor. 

4. Other forms as requested by the Financial Aid Office. 

Students are eligible to apply for financial assistance provided that they are meeting 
the requirements pertinent to the program(s) from which assistance is sought; and 
making satisfactory academic progress. Students who are classified as Transient, Con- 
tinuing Education, or Exchange are not eligible for financial aid. Students are required 
to adhere to all regulations and requirements of the program from which they receive 
assistance and to notify the Financial Aid Office of any changes in status which may affect 
their eligibility for aid. 

Students must apply for financial assistance every year. Awards are made for only the 
current year. 

The minimum number of semester hours for which a financial aid recipient may enroll 
per semester varies from program to program. Some require at least 12 hours per 
semester (full-time status). Many programs require that the student be enrolled at least 
half-time, taking 6 or more semester hours (6 hours of graduate level classes, for graduate 
students).

Scholarship Offerings 

There are many scholarships available to entering freshmen, which are awarded on 
the basis of merit, need or both. These monies will be awarded by a scholarship 
committee during Spring 1998 for the 1998-1999 academic year. You apply for these and 
other scholarships using the 1998-1999 Academic Scholarship Application which is 
available in the Financial Aid Office. The Freshmen Applicant deadline for submitting 
a scholarship application is February 1, 1998. The deadline for Returning, Transfer, or 
Graduate students is May 1, 1998. 

Some of the scholarships awarded are: 

Alumni Scholarships 

Anthony Porter Scholarship 

Class of '37 Scholarship 

Dixie Crystals Scholarship 

Eleanor Webster Boyd Scholarship 

Pauline Gooch Scholarship 

Nationsbank Scholarship 

Porter Pierpont Rotary Scholarship 

Sarah Mills Hodge Scholarship 

Savannah Jaycees Scholarship 

Savannah Volunteer Guards Scholarship 

There are also scholarships which are awarded by various departments on campus, 
including Art, Music & Theatre, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, & Engineering, Math- 
ematical Sciences, Computer Science, Dental Hygiene, Radiologic Sciences, History and 
Athletics. Students can contact these departments for application procedures. 

In addition, there are scholarships which require special applications or have differ- 
ent deadlines. These become available at various times during the year and are posted 
on the bulletin board outside the Financial Aid Office. Students should come by 
periodically during the year to check on any new offerings. 

With the approval of the President and consistent with Armstrong's overarching 
policy of ensuring integrity in the scholarship award process, the University accepts 
totally private funds donated for scholarships earmarked for certain categories of 
students. Allocation by AASU of such privately-funded scholarships is undertaken with 
the express purpose of broadening the award of scholarship aid to embrace students who 
might otherwise by excluded. 

HOPE (Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally): 

Georgia's program that rewards exemplary academic performance with tuition 
scholarships at Georgia public colleges. 

General Qualifications for Entering Freshman: 

As an entering freshman, a student must meet the following qualifications: 
Be a legal resident of Georgia; 

Be a 1993 or later graduate of an eligible Georgia High School; and 

Earn at least a "B" average (3.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale, or 80 

numeric grade average, meeting the college preparatory track; if you are in any 

other curriculum track, you must have a 3.2 cumulative grade point average on a 

4.0 scale, or 85 numeric grade average, meeting the curriculum requirements). A 

student may receive first-year HOPE assistance for the first 45 quarter or 30 

semester credit hours attempted at any Georgia public college or university. This 

includes tuition, HOPE-approved mandatory fees, and a book allowance up to 

$100 per quarter. Full-time enrollment is NOT required. 

HOPE funds may be applied only to tuition and mandatory fees NOT covered by PELL or other 

Federal grants received. Students may renew their scholarship for the sophomore, junior, 

and senior years. To do so a student must: 



i 



FINANCIAL INFORMATION 47 



Maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average for all course work attempted (not just 

course work completed); 
Reapply for the scholarship by completing the Free Application for Federal Student 

Aid (FAFSA) or, if applicable, the HOPE Alternate Application; and 
Be making satisfactory academic progress. 

College hours and grades attempted prior to high school graduation are not used in 
calculating the cumulative grade point average to renew the HOPE scholarship. 

Second-Chance Opportunity for Students to Regain HOPE: 

HOPE is a reward for scholastic achievement and an incentive to continue working 
hard in school. If after attempting 45 quarter or 30 semester hours in a public college a 
student falls below a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, they may continue their 
sophomore year at their own expense. If they then earn a 3.0 cumulative grade point 
average at the completion of their sophomore year (90 quarter or 60 semester AT- 
TEMPTED hours), they will be given a second chance to receive a HOPE Scholarship for 
their junior year with the opportunity to renew the scholarship for their senior year (135 
quarter or 90 semester ATTEMPTED hours). 

HOPE for Students Already in Public College or 
Returning to Public College: 

If a student graduated from high school before the HOPE program began in 1993, or 

if they are not academically eligible for the HOPE scholarship immediately after high 

school graduation, they may be eligible for the HOPE scholarship after attempting 45 or 

90 quarter hours OR 30 or 60 semester hours of study if they have a 3.0 cumulative grade 

point average and are legal residents of Georgia. 

HOPE Promise Program: The PROMISE Teacher Scholarship Program provides 

forgivable loans to high-achieving students who aspire to be teachers in Georgia public 

schools. 

To be eligible, a student must meet the following qualifications: 

Must be a legal resident of Georgia; 

Must have earned a minimum, cumulative grade-point average of 3.6 based on a 4.0 scale 
and be academically classified as a junior; and 

Be accepted for enrollment into a teacher education program leading to initial certifica- 
tion. 

HOPE Teacher Program: The HOPE Teacher Scholarship Program provides forgiv- 
able loans to individuals seeking advanced education degrees in critical shortage fields 

of study. 

To be eligible, a student must meet the following qualifications: 

Must be a legal resident of Georgia; and 

Be admitted for regular admission into graduate school and into an advanced degree 
teacher education program leading to initial certification in a critical field. 

More information on the eligible fields is available in the Financial Aid Office. 

Loan Information: 

Federal Stafford Loans: Available in two forms: 

Subsidized: Need-based. The federal government pays interest as long as the student 

maintains at least half time enrollment.

tions on application procedures. 



FINANCIAL INFORMATION 49 



Standards of Academic Progress 

The Higher Education Act mandates that institutions of higher education establish 
minimum standards of "satisfactory academic progress" for students receiving financial 
aid. To receive financial aid at Armstrong Atlantic State University, a student must both 
maintain a satisfactory grade point average and be making satisfactory progress as 
outlined below. These requirements apply to any grants, loans or scholarships that 
contain any federal or state funds. 

It is the responsibility of the student to read and adhere to Armstrong's policy 
regarding Standards of Academic Progress. Failure to meet the minimum requirements 
defined by this policy will result in the student's ineligibility for assistance. Before a 
student can receive aid from any of these programs for a particular year, they must meet 
the following requirements: 

(1) Academic Standing: Students who have earned 90 quarter or 60 semester hours and 
do not have a 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) are not eligible for financial aid. 

(2) Progress Toward Degree Completion: Students must make significant progress 
toward completion of degree requirements in order to receive aid. Armstrong 
Atlantic State University requires students to successfully complete at least 67% of 
attempted course-work for the prior academic year (Fall-Spring). For instance, if a 
student enrolled in 15 hours in Fall through Spring terms they will be required to 
complete 30 hours (67% of 45=30). Grades of WI WF, V, F, U, and I are not considered 
successful course completion. 

(3) Credit Hour Limit: Students at Armstrong are given a maximum number of credit 
hours in which to complete their degrees. Students who exceed this limit are not 
eligible for aid. The credit hour limit allowed for financial aid purposes is 150% of the 
total number of hours necessary to be awarded a degree. Credit hours attempted both 
at Armstrong and elsewhere are counted toward this limit. If the student has 
attempted 286 quarter hours or 1 86 semester hours without earning a degree, they will 
no longer be eligible to receive aid (150% of average degree requirement). This policy 
has the greatest effect on students who change their majors; therefore, students 
planning such a change should give careful consideration to the potential impact on 
their financial aid. Learning Support classes will be counted toward the credit hour 
limit. 

Reinstatement of Aid 

Students whose aid is terminated because they failed to meet the above requirement 
may appeal (see below) or reapply for aid the following academic year, if they have met 
the standards for classes taken since the termination of their aid. 

Appeal of Aid Suspension 

Students who feel they can demonstrate mitigating circumstances which affected 
their academic progress may make a written appeal to the Standards of Progress Appeal 
Committee. Forms for this type of appeal are available in the Financial Aid Office. 
Students will be notified of the committee's decision approximately two weeks from the 
date the appeal is submitted. 

Appeals may be mailed to: 

Armstrong Atlantic State University 
Financial Aid Office 
SOP Appeals Committee 
11935 Abercorn Street 
Savannah, Georgia 31419-1997

Academic Policies and Information 

Academic Advisement 

Advisement is a required segment of the registration process. All students must be 
advised prior to registering for courses and may register only for courses that have been 
approved on a signed advisement form. Students and their advisors are encouraged to 
determine alternate approved courses and to include them on the advisement form. In 
the event that one or more of the preferred courses are filled, the student may immedi- 
ately select an alternate approved course to replace the filled course. The Vice President 
and Dean of Faculty gives overall direction to the advisement program, with the 
appropriate department heads coordinating advisement activities within the various 
departments. Students should refer to the Semester Schedule of Classes for specific 
advisement instructions. 

Academic Renewal for Returning Students 

Students who return to college after an absence of six years or longer may be eligible 
for Academic Renewal - a policy whereby academic credit for previously completed 
course work is retained only for courses in which a grade of A, B, C, or S has been earned. 
Retained grades are not calculated in the Academic Renewal GPA; however, for honors 
purposes during graduation all course work is considered. 

Academic Standing 

The University recognizes four academic categories: Good Standing, Good Standing 
with Warning, Academic Probation, and Academic Suspension. Students are expected 
to maintain or exceed the grade point average (GPA) as indicated in the chart below. 

Semester Hours Attempted Required Overall 

At Armstrong and Elsewhere GPA 

- 30 1.5 

31 - 60 1.7 

61 - 90 1.9 

over 90 2.0 

A student who falls below the overall GPA for the first time is placed on Good 
Standing with Warning. Failure to raise the overall GPA to the required level during the 
next semester will result in Academic Probation. Students on Academic Probation are 
not in Good Standing. If the student's overall GPA is raised to the required level, the 
student is returned to Good Standing. The second or any subsequent failure to meet the 
required GPA will result in Academic Suspension. 

Students on Academic Probation who fail to achieve the required overall GPA, but 
who do earn an average of at least 2.0 during the probationary semester, will be 
continued on Academic Probation for the next semester of attendance. Students on 
Academic Probation who neither achieve the required overall GPA nor earn at least a 2.0 
average during the probationary semester will be placed on Academic Suspension from 
the University for one semester. A student on Academic Suspension for the first time has 
the option of attending summer school without having to appeal the suspension. 
However, a student who fails to make satisfactory progress as a result of summer school 
will have to appeal for readmission in the fall semester. Other than this one exception 
(attending summer school without having to appeal the suspension), students must 
submit a written appeal in order to be considered for readmission. 



ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 51^ 

A student suspended for academic reasons for the first or second time may appeal by 
letter to the Committee on Academic Standing to be considered for readmission. This 
letter should state the nature of any extenuating circumstances relating to the academic 
deficiency and must be delivered to the office of the Dean of Academic and Enrollment 
Services no later than 9 a.m. of registration day. The Committee on Academic Standing 
will make a recommendation to the President, and the decision of the President is final. 

A student re-entering the University after an Academic Suspension is placed on 
Academic Probation and must meet the requirements listed above. A third Academic 
Suspension is final. 

Armstrong Students Transient Elsewhere 

Armstrong students who wish to take coursework at another college with the intent 
of applying the courses to their academic record at Armstrong may do so in accordance 
with regulations for transient status to another college. Students must meet the require- 
ments stipulated by the other college, and, in order to apply the credits toward their 
academic records at Armstrong, must meet the academic regulations of Armstrong. 
Consult with the Office of the Registrar for details. 

Attendance 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the effect of attendance on the 
grades in a course are left to the discretion of the instructor. A student is responsible for 
knowing everything that is announced, discussed, or lectured upon in class as well as for 
mastering all assigned reading. A student is also responsible for submitting on time all 
assignments and tests, recitations and unannounced quizzes. 

The instructor will be responsible for informing each class at its first meeting what 
constitutes excessive absence in that particular class. Each student is responsible for 
knowing the attendance regulation and for complying with it. An instructor may drop 
a student from any class with a grade of "W" or "WF," as appropriate, if in the instructor's 
judgment the student's absences have been excessive. 

Auditing Courses 

During the registration process the student should request to audit. A student may 
not change from audit to credit status or from credit to audit status after completing the 
process of registration for a course. A student who audits a course will have a "V" 
recorded for that course. The regular schedule of fees applies to auditors. No student may 
audit a course in the Department of Learning Support. 

Course and Study Load 

The normal course load for full-time students is 12-15 semester hours plus a course in 
physical education during the freshman and sophomore years. A full-time student is 
defined as one who is registered for 12 or more hours. A part-time student is one 
registered for fewer than 12 semester hours. A student should plan about six hours 
preparation per week for each 3 semester hour course. It is recommended that required 
Learning Support students limit their course load to 12 semester hours. 

Classification of Students 

A student who has earned fewer than 30 semester hours will be classified as a 
freshman; between 30 and 59, inclusive, as a sophomore; between 60 and 89, inclusive, 
as a junior; and 90 or more as a senior. Students register based on their classification. 



52 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



Dropping Courses 

A student desiring to drop a course after the semester has begun must obtain a Drop- 
Add Notice in the Office of the Registrar. The notice must be signed by the instructor of 
the course being dropped and returned by the student to the Office of the Registrar. 

A student who drops a course within the first seven days will receive a grade of "W" 
for the course. A student who drops a course after the first seven class days and on or 
before the semester dates listed for mid-term will receive a " W" or a "WF" depending on 
the status in the course. A student who drops a Learning Support course after the first 
two weeks will receive a "WF". A student may not drop a course without penalty 
following the semester dates listed for mid-term. A student is not allowed to drop RGTR 
0199, ENGL 1101, 1102, or 2100 at any time unless extenuating circumstances prevail. In 
order to drop one of these courses, the drop form must be authorized by the Dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences or a designated representative. 

A Learning Support student who withdraws or is withdrawn from a required 
Learning Support course will also be dropped from college level credit courses. The 
student may, however, remain enrolled in other Learning Support courses and, if in 
another Learning Support course, may also remain in courses carrying fewer than three 
semester credit hours. 

English and Mathematics Placement 

During the initial terms of enrollment at Armstrong Atlantic State University, 
students must enroll in the appropriate sequence of English composition courses until 
the sequence has been completed and /or the Regents' Test has been passed. Students 
must not delay this sequence beyond their second semester of attendance. For assistance 
in identifying the appropriate English composition courses, students should consult 
advisors in the departments of their declared majors, the Office of Admissions, or the 
Department of Languages, Literature, and Philosophy. See Department of Languages, 
Literature, and Philosophy for further information. 

Grade Appeals 

Appeals for a change of grade may be initiated through the head of the appropriate 
academic department prior to midterm of the semester after the grade was received, in 
accordance with the Regulations of Armstrong Atlantic State University. Without the 
approval of the Academic Standing Committee, no change of grade, other than incom- 
plete, may be made later than two calendar semesters following the semester in which 
the grade was received. 

A student who contests a grade will have the following line of appeal: 

1. The student will discuss the contested grade with the instructor involved. 

2. If the grade dispute remains unresolved, the student will meet with the depart- 
ment head and the instructor. If the grade dispute is with the department head, the 
student will meet with the dean of the school and the department head. A 
"memorandum for the record" will be prepared by the department head (or dean) 
which will include the substance of the conversations during the meeting. The 
student will receive a copy upon request. 

3. If the grade dispute remains unresolved, the student will present his or her appeal 
in writing to the department head or the dean of the school, as applicable, who will 
then appoint a review board to hear the appeal. It is expected that the student will 
initiate this step no later than midterm of the semester after the grade was received 
(except if the student plans enrollment in a course for which the course grade being 
appealed is a prerequisite — see "4" below). 

a. The review board will consist of the department head or the dean of the school, 
as applicable, and two members of the department, not including the instructor 
involved. A separate hearing officer shall be appointed by the school dean. In 
small departments, membership may come from outside the department. 






ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 53 

b. The review board shall hear statements from both the student and the instructor 
involved and will examine documents that are pertinent to the matter under 
review. 

c. The review board will hear the grade appeal and present its findings to the 
school dean prior to the last week of the semester. 

4. If the student plans enrollment in a course for which the course grade being 
appealed is a prerequisite, then the following timetable will be met at the first of 
that semester: 

a. If a grade appeal is not resolved with the instructor concerned, the student will 
file an appeal in writing with the department head (or the dean of the school if 
the grade dispute is with the department head). This step will be taken by the 
second day of the semester. 

b. The review board to hear the appeal will be appointed by the third day of the 
semester. If department members are not available to form a review board, the 
dean of the school, in consultation with the department head, will appoint a 
review board. 

c. A review board will hear and complete the grade appeal by the fifth day of the 
semester and present its findings to the school dean through the hearing officer 
(or the Vice President if the dean is a member of the committee). 

d. If the appeal to the school dean is denied, the student will be dropped from the 

course if the student is already enrolled. 

5. If the school dean denies the appeal, the student may continue the appeal to the 
Vice President and Dean of Faculty. This appeal must be in writing and must be 
filed within five days of notification from the school dean. 

6. Neither the President nor the Board of Regents will accept or consider appeals 
based on academic grades.

to the appropriate Dean. The "S" and "U" symbols may be utilized for completion of 
degree requirements other than academic course work (such as student teaching, clinical 
practice, etc.). A "WF" (Withdrew, Failing) is recorded for any student withdrawing after 
the mid-term date. Grades received in Learning Support courses are not computed in the 
GPA. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Dean of the School in which the 
course is taught and will be approved only on the basis of hardship. 

Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation 

There are three Academic Grade Point Averages (GPA) displayed on students' 
transcripts. 

Institutional GPA: is determined by dividing the total honor points earned by the total 
hours attempted on all course work taken at Armstrong only. 

Transfer GPA: is determined by dividing the total honor points earned by the total hours 
attempted on all transfer coursework taken at other institutions. 

Overall GPA: is determined by dividing the total honor points earned by the total hours 
attempted on all course work taken at Armstrong and elsewhere. 

Honors 

Dean's List: Students enrolled for at least nine semester hours of course work 

who earn a grade point average of at least 3.6 will be placed on the 
Dean's List. Only course work taken at Armstrong will be used in 
the computation of Dean's List honors. 

Cum Laude: Those students graduating with a grade point average of 3.2 through 

3.499 will graduate cum laude. 

Magna Cum Laude: Those students graduating with a grade point average of 3.5 through 
3.799 will graduate magna cum laude. 

Summa Cum Laude: Those students graduating with a grade point average of 3.8 through 
4.0 will graduate summa cum laude. 
All work attempted at Armstrong and other accredited institutions will be considered 
in computing honors for graduation. Academic honors will not be awarded to second 
degree recipients unless the student specifically requests an "award evaluation." For 
students who are granted Academic Renewal, all course work is considered for honors. 

Overloads and Courses at Other Colleges 

Permission to enroll for more than 17 semester hours will be granted by the Registrar 
if a student: 

1. Has earned an average grade of "B" for full-time enrollment in the preceding 
semester, or 

2. Has earned an overall grade point average of 3.0 or 

3. Requires an extra course in one or two semesters prior to graduation. 

No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 semester hours. A student who 
is on academic probation will not be permitted to register for more than 17 semester 
hours. Exceptions to these limitations may be made only by the appropriate dean. 

A student enrolled at Armstrong who at the same time takes courses for credit at 
another college may not transfer such credit to Armstrong, unless written permission 
from the appropriate dean has been obtained. 



ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 55 

Withdrawing from the University 

Withdrawing from the University is "dropping all courses for the current enrollment 
period". Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw should begin the withdrawal 
process in the Division of Student Affairs. Formal withdrawal from the University is 
required to ensure that the student is eligible to return to Armstrong at a future date. Any 
refund to which a student is entitled will be considered on the basis of the date which 
appears on the formal withdrawal form. Grading procedures for withdrawing are the 
same as those listed for dropping a course. 

Withdrawal - Involuntary 

A student may be administratively withdrawn from the University when in the 
judgment for the Vice President for Student Affairs and the University physician, if any, 
and after consultation with the student's parents and personal physician, if any, it is 
determined that the student suffers from a physical, mental, emotional or psychological 
health condition which: (a) poses a significant danger or threat of physical harm to the 
student or to the person or property of others or (b) causes the student to interfere with 
the rights of other members of the University community or with the exercise of any 
proper activities or functions of the University or its personnel or causes the student to 
be unable to meet institutional requirements for admission and continued enrollment, as 
defined in the student conduct code and other publications of the University. 

Except in emergency situations, a student shall, upon request, be accorded an 
appropriate hearing prior to a final decision concerning his or her continued enrollment 
at the University. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program is designed to challenge and reward students of high academic 
ability and motivation with special intellectual, cultural, and social opportunities. Its 
courses are intellectually challenging and offer a breadth of perspective and depth of 
understanding. Beyond the classroom, the program also aims to create an atmosphere 
that encourages students to fully develop their interests and abilities and provides them 
with an edge in their future goals. 

The program consists of two parts: 

a) Honors in the Core: Honors students complete the Honors in the Core requirement 
by earning a "B" or better in four of the following courses: 

• HIST 1 1 12H (Honors Civilization II) 

• ENGL 1102H (Honors Composition 11) 

• ENGL 2100H (Honors Literature) 

• MATH 1161 (Calculus I) or MATH 2072 (Calculus II) 

• PSYC 1101H (Honors General Psychology) 

• CHEM 1212H (Honors Principles of Chemistry II) 

b) Honors in the Major: Honors students complete the Honors in the Major compo- 
nent by satisfying the requirements specified by the major area and approved by 
the Honors Committee. These requirements may include a specific course or an 
independently designed research project, paper, or performance. 

Admission to the Program 

Entering Students 

Entering students may apply to the Honors Program if they score 1 100 on the SAT and 
graduate with 3.2 GPA on a 4.0 scale. Students scoring 3 or better on each of three 
Advanced Placement examinations of the College Board are also eligible to apply.

Continuing Students 

Continuing students may apply to enter the Honors Program if they have at least a 3.2 
overall GPA in university coursework and are either enrolled in or have completed 
an honors course. Honors courses in the core are open to all students who meet the 
published prerequisites. 

Graduation with Honors 

Students will Graduate with Honors by completing the Honors in the Core compo- 
nent and the Honors in the Major component, and graduating with a 3.2 GPA. The 
achievement will be noted in student's graduation regalia, on the diploma, and in the 
college transcript. Honors Program graduates will also receive one of the traditional 
Latin honors. 

Scholarships 

A limited number of scholarships are available for qualified students who meet and 
maintain high standards of academic performance. Participation in the Honors Program 
will be considered a positive factor in the evaluation of scholarship awards. 

Extracurricular Activities 

The Honors Program hosts luncheons, field trips, and other social events each term 
designed to help participants plan their program of study, to allow participants to meet 
faculty teaching Honors classes, to recognize outstanding student achievements, and to 
plan group participation in social and cultural activities. Additional benefits include 
early preregistration privileges, Honors housing, and the Honors Classroom and Lounge 
in Gamble Hall.

Honor Code 

The Honor Code at Armstrong Atlantic State University is dedicated to the proposi- 
tion that the protection of the grading system is in the interest of the student community. 
The Student Court is an institutional means to assure that the student community shall 
have primary disposition of infractions of the Honor Code and that students accused of 
such infractions shall enjoy those procedural guarantees traditionally considered essen- 
tial to fair and impartial hearing, the foremost of which is the presumption of innocence 
until guilt is established beyond a reasonable doubt. 

I. Responsibilities of Students: 

All students must agree to abide by the rules of the Honor Code. A student shall not 
be accepted at Armstrong Atlantic State University unless he or she signs a statement 
affirming his understanding of this agreement. The Honor Code shall be printed in the 
official bulletin and Students Illustrated. 

It will be the responsibility of the Student Court or its designated representative to 
conduct an orientation program at the beginning of each semester for all new students 
to explain fully the Honor Code and to allow full discussion of its requirements. 

Any student desiring assistance with any matter related to the Honor Code is invited 
to seek assistance in the Division of Student Affairs. 

II. Violations of the Honor Code: 

Violations of the Honor Code may be of two kinds: (a) general and (b) those related 
to the peculiarities of specific course-related problems and to the understanding of 
individual instructors. Any instructor whose conception of cheating would tend to 



ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 57 

enlarge or contract the general regulations defining cheating must explicitly notify the 
affected students of the qualifications to the general regulations which he or she wishes 
to stipulate. The following will be considered general violations of the Honor Code. 

1. Giving or receiving any unauthorized help on any assignment, test or paper. The 
meaning of unauthorized help shall be made clear by the instructor of each class. 

2. Stealing when related to cheating. 

3. Plagiarizing. Plagiarism is the unacknowledged use of another's words or ideas. 
Students must be familiar with the explanation of plagiarism given in the writing 
handbook used in freshman composition classes. Ignorance of what constitutes 
plagiarism will not be accepted as an excuse for plagiarism. 

4. Giving perjured testimony before the Student Court. 

5. Suborning, attempting to suborn, or intimidating witnesses. 

6. Failing to report a suspected violation of the Honor Code. 

III. Reporting Violations of the Honor Code: 

Anyone wishing to report a violation may come to the Division of Student Affairs for 
assistance in contacting members of the Student Court. 

A. Self-reporting: Students who have broken the Honor Code should report them- 
selves to a member of the Student Court. 

B. Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware of a violation of the Honor Code 
must report the matter. 

1. Tell persons thought to be guilty to report themselves to a member of the 
Student Court no later than the end of the next school day. After this designated 
time, the person who is aware of the violation must inform a member of the 
Student Court so that the Student Court may contact the accused persons if they 
have not already reported themselves. 

2. Report the suspected violation directly to a member of the Student Court 
without informing the accused. 

IV. The Procedural Rights of the Students Accused of Violations of the Honor Code: 

The essence of the procedural rights of the accused is the right to be presumed 
innocent until proven guilty. Specific rights are as follows: 

1. The accused will be notified in writing by the Student Court or its designated 
representative of the nature and details of the offense with which they are charged, 
along with the names of their accusers and the principal witnesses to be brought 
against them. This notification shall occur no less than three days prior to the date 
of the hearing. 

2. The accused has the right to counsel of their own choosing. Such counsel will not 
participate directly in the proceedings except to advise the client. It is expected that 
such counsel will be drawn from the University community. 

3. The accused and the person bringing the charges shall be afforded an opportunity 
to present witnesses and documentary or other evidence. The accused and any 
individual bringing the charges shall have the right to cross examine all witnesses 
and may, where the witnesses cannot appear because of illness or other cause 
acceptable to the Court, present the sworn statement of the witnesses. The Court 
shall not be bound by formal rules governing the presentation of evidence, and it 
may consider any evidence presented which is of probative value in the case. 

4. The accused may not be made to bear witness against themselves. The Court may 
not take the refusal of the accused to testify as evidence of guilt, but this proviso 
does not give the accused immunity from a hearing or from recommendations 
reached in a hearing simply because the accused does not testify. 

5. The accused shall have access to a complete audiotape of the hearing and to the 
record prepared by the Secretary. 

6. The substantive facts of a case may be re-opened for consideration upon initiation 
of the accused acting through normal appeal channels. The accused shall not be put 
in double jeopardy. 



58 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



7. All witnesses will be sequestered from the hearing room during the course of a 
hearing. Witnesses may not discuss a pending case. 

8. By prior agreement, the accused will be allowed such observers of the hearing as 
may be commensurate with the space available. Otherwise, in the interests of the 
right of privacy of the accused, hearings will be private, except that the University 
may also have observers additional to the advisors to the Student Court. 

V. The Student Conduct Committee, the Student Court and Advisors to the 
Student Court: 

A. Student Conduct Committee 

1. The Student Conduct Committee shall be responsible to the faculty for recom- 
mending policies relating to the Academic Honor Code and the Code of 
Conduct, for formulating or approving rules, enforcement procedures, and 
sanctions within the framework of existing policies, and for recommending 
changes in the administration of any aspects of the Honor Code and the Student 
Code of Conduct. The Conduct Committee will also interview and select 
members for the Student Court. 

2. The Committee shall consist of five teaching faculty members, the Vice Presi- 
dent for Student Affairs and four students. The four students will be the 
President and Vice President of the Student Court, the President of the Student 
Government Association, and one student-at-large. The faculty members shall 
be appointed by the faculty in accordance with the faculty statutes. 

3. The Vice President of Student Affairs shall assist the Conduct Committee in the 
development of policy and in the discharge of its responsibilities. He or she shall 
coordinate the activities of all officials, committees, student groups, and 
tribunals for student conduct. 

4. All regulations or rules relating to student conduct that are proposed by any 
University official, committee or student group, and for which sanctions may 
be imposed in the name of the University, must be submitted to the Committee 
for consideration and review prior to submission to the faculty and the student 
body. The Committee shall have 10 days in which to review the same. 

B. Student Court 

1 . The Student Court will be selected by the Student Conduct Committee and will 
be composed of twelve students. Due consideration will be given to equitable 
apportionment of court members on the basis of academic class, race, and sex. 
Students on academic probation may not serve. All appointments will be issued 
and accepted in writing. Appointments will be made during Spring Semester in 
time for newly elected members of the Court to assume their duties by May 1. 
Appointments will be made as needed to keep the Student Court staffed to do 
business on a reasonably prompt basis. These appointments may constitute 
permanent or temporary replacements as the Student Conduct Committee 
deems necessary. 

2. The Student Court will elect a President, Vice President, and a Secretary from 
its membership. The President will preside at all meetings. The Vice President 
will assume the duties of the President if the President is absent. The Secretary 
will maintain written notes of all proceedings and audiotape records of all 
testimony, and will maintain exhibits of evidence which by their nature may 
reasonably be maintained in the Court files. A quorum of the Court shall consist 
of seven members. A two-thirds majority secret ballot vote is required to reach 
a finding of guilty. All other questions may be decided by a simple majority 
vote. 

3. Constituency of the Student Court during the Summer Semester shall includ< 
all appointed members in attendance, and others shall be appointed to member- 
ship by the Student Conduct Committee. 



ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 59 



4. Student Court members shall examine their consciences carefully to determine 
whether they can in good conscience serve on a panel hearing a particular case, 
and in the event that there is any doubt whatsoever, such members shall excuse 
themselves from duty on the specific panel in question. 
C. Advisors to the Court 

1 . An advisor and an associate advisor to the Student Court shall be appointed by 
the President of the University. 

2. Ordinarily the advisor will serve in that office for one year only and usually will 
be succeeded in that position by the associate advisor. Therefore, after the initial 
appointments, only an associate advisor will ordinarily be appointed each year. 
The succession of an associate to the advisor position is deemed to occur on the 
last day of Spring Semester. If, for any reason, the advisor is unable to complete 
his or her term, the associate advisor shall succeed to the office of advisor and 
another associate advisor shall be appointed by the above procedures. If, during 
the Summer Semester, neither advisor is on campus, a temporary advisor will 
be appointed. 

3. Duties of the advisor and the associate advisor: It shall be the duty of the advisor 
to consult with the Court and to offer advice to the President and members of 
the Court on substantive and procedural questions. The advisor, or the associ- 
ate advisor in the event the advisor is unable to attend, shall be present at all 
meetings and hearings of the Court. The advisor may not vote or participate 
directly in the conduct of hearings before the Court except through the chair, or 
acting chair, of the Court. The advisor should be governed at all times by the 
principle that a hearing before the Student Court is primarily a matter of student 
responsibility. 

VI. Procedures and Penalties Adopted by the Student Court. 

The Student Court shall formulate its own bylaws governing internal organization 
and procedure. Such bylaws must be consistent with the Honor Code. 

A. Hearings shall be called by the Court President to be held on a date not less than 
three nor more than ten class days after notice to the accused as provided in Section 
IV-2. Exceptions to these time requirements may be granted. 

B. Upon reaching a finding of guilty, the Court shall make a recommendation to the 
Vice President of theUniversity as to the administrative action it deems appropri- 
ate within the following limitations: 

1 . A minimum penalty shall be loss of assignment or test credit for the assignment 
or test for violations involving cheating as specified in Section II, subsections 1, 
2, and 3. 

Additional penalties such as reprimands, suspension, or others may be recom- 
mended for any aspects of Section II. 

2. Maximum penalty for a first offense of any type shall be suspension for a full 
calendar year. 

3. Maximum penalty for a second offense may be suspension for three years. 

C. Immediately following a hearing, the accused will be informed of the Court's 
finding and its recommendation to the Vice President and Dean of Faculty. If the 
finding is guilty, the accused will be informed that the Court may reopen t h e 
case with the consent of the accused for good cause, within a three week period. 

D. The Vice President and Dean of Faculty will inform all involved persons in writing 
of the action taken in view of the Court recommendation. The Court Secretary will 
post public notice of the Vice President's action by case number without identify- 
ing the accused. 

VII. Appeals of Findings and Penalties: 

Should students have cause to question the findings of the Court or the action of the 
Vice President of the University or both, they have the right to appeal. The channels of 
appeal are as follows: 



60 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



A. Court findings and /or the administrative action of the Vice President of the 
University may be appealed within five days by writing the President of the 
University. Further appeal procedures will conform to the appeal procedures of 
the University and of the Policies of the Board of Regents, University System of 
Georgia. 

VIII. Supervision of the Student Court: 

As an institutional means of responding to reported infractions of the Honor Code, 
the Student Court is ultimately responsible to the President of the University. 

Supervision of the Student Court will be accomplished ordinarily through the Vice 
President for Student Affairs and the Advisors. 

In accordance with Article VI, Section F, of the University Statutes, the Vice President 
for Student Affairs will provide general supervision of the Student Court and will 
provide other guidance or services as directed by the President of the University. 

IX. Revision of the Honor Code will require confirmation by the majority vote of 
those faculty and student body members voting. 

General Degree Requirements 

Each student is responsible for fulfilling the requirements of the degree program 
chosen in accordance with the regulations of the University catalog. 

Application for Graduation 

Before a degree will be conferred, students must pay all fees and must submit to the 
cashier a completed Application for Graduation two semesters before graduation. A 
candidate for a degree, unless excused in writing by the President, Vice President and 
Dean of Faculty, Vice President for Student Affairs, or Dean of Academic and Enrollment 
Services, must attend the graduation exercises at which a degree is to be conferred. 

Catalog in Effect 

A student will normally graduate under the catalog in effect at the time of admission to 
the University. However, it is recommended that students meet with their academic 
advisors due to a number of issues (including semester conversion). In the School of Health 
Professions, a student will graduate under the catalog in effect at the time of admission or 
readmission (whichever is more current) to a particular Health Professions program. In the 
College of Education, a student will graduate under the catalog in effect at the time of 
admission to the teacher education program. Armstrong Atlantic State University, how- 
ever, reserves the right to change any provision listed in this catalog, including but not 
limited to academic requirements for graduation, without actual notice to individual 
students. All new and readmitted students must follow semester requirements. 

Course Requirement Exception Exceptions to course requirements for a degree are 
permitted only with the written approval of the appropriate dean, upon the recommen- 
dation of the department or division head. However, all exceptions to the core curriculum 
requirements must have the approval of the Vice President and Dean of Faculty. 

Credit Hour Requirements 

To qualify for the baccalaureate degree, a student must earn at Armstrong at least 30 
semester hours of credit applicable toward the degree. Additionally, the student must 
complete successfully at Armstrong at least half of the upper division credits required in 
the major field of study. For students in teacher education programs, the major field of 
study is the teaching field. For the Associate Degree, the student must complete at least 



ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 61 



30 semester hours of course work at Armstrong Atlantic State University. Armstrong 
students enrolled in the cooperative degree programs with Savannah State College of 
Business Education may be exempted from these requirements by a recommendation of 
the Dean of the College of Education, concurrence by the Education Curriculum 
Committee and approval of the Committee on Academic Standing. 

Double Major 

Students wishing to receive a double major must satisfy major requirements of both 
disciplines including all residency and institutional requirements for each major. Only 
one major will appear on the diploma. Both majors will be designated on the transcript.

education exit examination. 

History and Constitution/Requirements 

By state law, each student who receives a diploma or certificate from a school 
supported by the State of Georgia must demonstrate proficiency in United States History 
and Constitution and in Georgia History and Constitution. See Section on State Require- 
ment in History and Government. 

Maximum Hours by Correspondence, Extension, or Examination 

Not more than one-fourth of the academic course work counted toward a degree may 
consist of courses taken by correspondence, extension, or examination. No correspon- 
dence courses may be used to meet the requirements in the major field or related fields 
for the bachelor's degree or in English composition or foreign language. No correspon- 
dence courses may be taken while a student is enrolled, without prior approval of the 
appropriate dean and the head of the department in which the student is majoring. 

Minimum Grade Point Average

Physical Education Requirements "~y& ^ac //\/k ^t v 

All students who are enrolled in degree programs must adhere to the Armstrong 
Atlantic State University physical education requirements. 

Regents' Test 

All students must successfully complete the Regents' Test (please see Regents' 
Testing requirements in General Academic Policies for details). Candidates for a second 
baccalaureate degree are exempted from the Regents' Test requirement. 

Repeating Course 

When a course is repeated, only the last grade earned counts in earned hours 
requirements, GPA hours, points and overall GPA. All course work taken remains on a 
student's academic record. A student may repeat any course. However, the grade earned 



62 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 



in the last attempt will determine the number of quality points assigned for calculation 
of GPA. 

Course Repeat Symbols: 

E - Course Repeated (Course grade excluded from grade point average and hours earned) 

I - Course Repeated (Course grade included in grade point average and hours earned) 

Second Baccalaureate Degree 

A candidate for a second baccalaureate degree from Armstrong Atlantic State Univer- 
sity must earn a minimum of 30 additional credit hours and meet all requirements for the 
degree. The final GPA for the second baccalaureate degree will be based only on courses 
taken after completion of the first baccalaureate degree (whether courses were earned at 
Armstrong or at another institution). 

General Education Outcomes 

General education outcomes define the intellectual experience that Armstrong Atlan- 
tic State University students complete prior to graduation, regardless of their specific 
degrees or their career choices. These outcomes emphasize the central body of knowl- 
edge and skills that define a "college-educated" person and are grounded in the arts, 
humanities, mathematics, social and natural sciences. They foster a knowledgeable, 
curious, critical, and reflective frame of mind in every graduate. The Armstrong Atlantic 
State University general education outcomes encourage the broad enhancement of each 
person's capabilities and promote the development of skills in communication, problem 
solving, and lifelong learning needed for individual growth and social improvement. All 
students must take an exit examination covering those general education outcomes prior 
to graduation. 

The following general education outcomes include elements from both the University 
core and individual majors: 

A. Demonstrate computer literacy. 

B. Demonstrate effective oral and written communication. 

C. Demonstrate the effective use of traditional and modern sources of information.

Regents' Testing Program 

Each institution of the University System of Georgia shall assure the other institu- 
tions, and the System as a whole, that students obtaining a degree from that institution 
possess certain minimum skills of reading and writing. The Regents' Testing Program 
has been developed to help in the attainment of this goal. The objectives of the Testing 
Program are: (1 ) to provide system wide information on the status of student competence 
in the areas of reading and writing; and (2) to provide a uniform means of identifying 
those students who fail to attain the minimum levels of competence in the areas of 
reading and writing. 

Students enrolled in undergraduate degree programs leading to the baccalaureate 
degree shall pass the Regents' Test as a requirement for graduation. Students must take 
the Test during the semester after they have completed 40 semester credit hours if they 
have not taken it previously. Each institution shall provide an appropriate program of 
remediation and shall require students who have earned 50 semester credit hours and 
have not passed the Test to enroll in the appropriate remedial course or courses until they 
pass the Regents' Test. Students with 40 or more college-level credit hours transferring 
from System programs that do not require the Regents' Test or from institutions outside 
the System shall take the Regents' Test no later than the second semester of enrollment 
in a program leading to the baccalaureate degree and in subsequent semesters shall be 
subject to all provisions of this policy. 



ACADEMIC POLICIES AND INFORMATION 67 

The Chancellor will issue administrative procedures for the operation of the Regents' 
Testing Program. (A copy of Regents' Testing Program Administrative Procedures is 
available from the Division of Student Affairs, Room 211, Memorial College Center.) 

According to "Regents' Testing Program Administration Procedures", institutions 
may increase requirements related to the Regents' Testing Program "provided that such 
increased requirements are authorized by the Chancellor and published in the official 
catalog of the institution prior to implementation." Armstrong Atlantic State University 
has chosen to require the Test of all undergraduates who have not earned a baccalau- 
reate or higher degree regardless of degree objective. 

Exemptions to the Regents' Testing Requirement 

A student holding a baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited 
institution of higher education will not be required to complete the Regents' Test in order 
to receive a degree from a University System institution. 

Regents' Test: Administration and Remediation Requirements 

Students attending Armstrong Atlantic State University are urged to take the Re- 
gents' Test during their first semester of enrollment after the semester in which the 30th 
credit hour is earned. For the purpose of enforcing Regents' Testing Program Policy, 
transfer students are identified through the process of admission and transcript evalu- 
ation. Students register for the Regents' Test in the Division of Student Affairs prior to 
the publicized application deadline. 

Students who neglect to take the Regents' Test until their first semester of enrollment 
after the semester in which the 40th credit hour is earned may be barred from all phases 
of registration until after test scores are posted. 

Regardless of credit hours earned, students who do not pass the Regents' Test may be 
required by Armstrong Atlantic State University to take remedial courses before they 
retake the Regents' Test. In accordance with Regents' Testing Program Policy, students 
who have not passed the Regents' Test and who have earned 50 semester hours must take 
remedial courses, whether or not they have attempted the test. 

Students who fail the reading portion of the Regents' Test and who have less than 50 
semester hours earned with an adjusted GPA of 2.5 or better may appeal the requirement 
for RGTR 0198 (Regents' Reading Preparation)_to the Head of the Department of 
Learning Support. 

Students who fail the essay portion of the test and have less than 50 semester hours 
earned with an adjusted GPA of 3.0 or better and a 3.0 or better in required core courses 
in English may appeal the requirement for RGTE 0199 (Composition Review) to the Head 
of the Department of Languages, Literature, and Philosophy. 

Regents' Test: Special Categories of Students 

At Armstrong Atlantic State University, students whose native language is not 
English must take the reading component of the Regents' Test, but may take a college 
examination to certify competence in writing. The college equivalent of the essay 
component of the Regents' Test is administered on the same date as the reading 
component of the Test. International students are allowed two hours for each test. 
International students, under certain conditions, may request a college equivalent of the 
reading component of the Regents' Test. See the Regents' Reading Coordinator in the 
Department of Learning Support. 

Students with documented disabilities may request additional time and other appro- 
priate accommodations for the Regents' Test. Documentation must be reviewed and 
approved by the Director of Disability Services, Division of Student Affairs, one semester 
prior to the date of testing.

Regents' Test if the essay received at least one passing score and the review is initiated 
by mid-term of the first semester of enrollment following testing and no more than one 
year from the semester in which the failure occurred. Only reviews processed in the first 
two weeks of a semester will be answered before the next Regents' Test. Students may

Philosophy and Goals 

Through its faculty, laboratory facilities, and other instructional resources, the 
College of Arts and Sciences offers students a broad range of educational opportunity in 
curricula ranging from Anthropology to Zoology. 

As a foundation for baccalaureate programs, the College provides the core curricu- 
lum of the University - courses in the arts, humanities, and mathematics, as well as the 
sciences and social sciences, which are required of all students regardless of major. (For 
details, please see the section on "Degree Requirements" in this Catalog.) Beyond these 
basics, College curricula enable students to pursue specialized studies in a discipline, 
which provides a solid grounding in the field by probing its theory, methodology, and 
broader implications. Finally, major programs generally culminate in a "senior experi- 
ence" - e.g., an internship, a capstone course, or a senior thesis - which is designed to help 
students comprehend their field as a whole. 

In summary, Arts and Sciences curricula are designed to sharpen critical thinking and 
problem-solving skills and to cultivate such ethical sensitivity as will (1) equip students 
for careers, (2) provide a firm foundation for graduate study, and (3) educate for living. 
To this end many departments have active student professional or honorary societies. 
Moreover, the College of Arts and Sciences seeks to complement classroom instruction 
by offering an annual schedule of cultural events in liberal arts and sciences, such as 
lectures, field trips, faculty and student recitals or concerts, plays and exhibits - most of 
which are opened to the general public. More than one hundred such events are 
presented each year. In addition to supporting the overall mission of the University to 
serve the community beyond the campus, such events persuasively demonstrate for 
students how greatly all are enriched when curriculum comes to life. 

Organization and Degrees 

The College of Arts and Sciences includes the departments of Art, Music and Theatre; 
Biology; Chemistry and Physics; Computer Science; Government; History; Languages, 
Literature, and Philosophy; Mathematics; Social and Behavioral Sciences; and Military 
Science.

majors in art, music, and drama-speech, the Bachelor of Music Education degree, and in 
cooperation with the College of Education, the Bachelor of Science in Education in Art 
Education. 

Admission Requirements 

The college-level study of art, music, and theatre requires considerable background 
as well as a basic proficiency level. Those students who wish to major in art are expected 
to present a portfolio of previous work in at least one medium. In music, placement 
examinations are required of all entering students in music theory and applied music. 

Placement Examinations 

Transfer and new students in music must take placement examinations as appropri- 
ate in applied music, music theory, and music history. For art students, acceptance of 
transfer credit towards graduation requirements in each area is contingent upon the 
results of the examination in art history. Additionally, coursework at other institutions 
in studio art may not be counted towards graduation until a portfolio of artwork is 
submitted demonstrating competency in those areas in which classes have been com- 
pleted. 

Additional Requirements for Music Majors 

There are a variety of departmental policies and regulations which affect music 
majors. Included are requirements for recital attendance, ensemble participation, piano 
proficiency, recital participation, applied music levels, and the Rising Junior Applied 
Music Examination. A copy of A Handbook of Policies and Regulations for Music Majors will 
be given to each music student. 



76 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 

Please see the "Fees" section of this catalog for information on applied music fees. 

Directed Individual Studies (DIS) 

Directed Individual Studies (DIS) have a distinctly useful place in the art, music, and

The Biology Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree designed to provide the 
student with exposure to traditional and field oriented biology and more modern 
molecular aspects of biology. Students seeking the Bachelor of Science degree in biology 
or the B.S. degree in biology with teacher certification will receive a firm and rounded 
education in biology and physical sciences upon which professional careers or addi- 
tional study can be built. The program is attractive to students seeking careers in wildlife 
biology, teaching, research and to pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre- veterinary students. 
Flexibility in choosing electives in the major is appealing to students attempting to meet 
medical, dental, and veterinary school requirements, and the biology major can be 
obtained while meeting those requirements. It is possible by careful choice of electives 
to secure double majors, for example, with chemistry. However, additional credit hours 
may be necessary to complete double majors. 

Departmental advisors are available to provide information and assistance on all 
aspects of the B.S. degree in biology and B.S. in biology with teacher certification, with 
the requirements for graduate, medical, dental, and veterinary schools, and with career 
goals. The major inbiology consists of BIOL 1107, 1108, 2010, 2020 and 2500, CHEM 1211 / 
121 1L, 1212/1212L, and 2101/2101L, and at least 39 credit hours of biology courses 
numbered 3000 and above. The majority of the courses in the major numbered 3000 or 
above must be taken in the Biology Department at Armstrong Atlantic State University. 

Each student acquiring a major in biology must include in his/her program the 
following courses: BIOL 3000, 3010, 3700, 4200, 4700, 4800 and at least one 3 credit course 
from each of the categories 1, 2, and 3 below. 

In addition, biology majors must complete MATH 2200 (Statistics). Students consid- 
ering pre-medical, pre-veterinary, pre-dental or graduate programs should take PHYS 
1111/1111L and 1112/1112L or 2211/2211L and 2212/2212L, and CHEM 2102/2102L. 
The physics courses, CHEM 2102/2102L (Organic Chemistry II), and additional chem- 
istry and calculus courses may be used to replace up to 12 credit hours of biology 
electives, an appealing aspect of the biology pre-professional program. 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 83 

To be eligible for the B.S. degree in biology, the student must have a grade of at least 
'C for all biology courses applied to the major. The student must also take the biology 
subject test of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) as an exit exam.

The AASU Engineering Transfer Program 

The AASU Engineering Transfer Program offers course work contained in the first 
two years of the standard engineering curriculum at most accredited engineering 
schools. After following the suggested course sequence at Armstrong Atlantic, a student 
should be able to transfer to any ABET accredited engineering school and complete the 
requirements for a baccalaureate degree in a chosen field of engineering in a total of four 
to five years, which is the time typical of all engineering students. The program of courses 
has been constructed with advice from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Students are 
advised to contact the engineering school of choice on questions of transfer. 

Scholarships in Chemistry 

The department offers a limited number of scholarships to chemistry, applied physics 
and engineering majors. Interested students are invited to inquire in the department 
office for details.

Fisk, Len White, Laurie 

The Department of Computer Science offers a wide range of services to the AASU 
student. Several computer literacy courses are available to satisfy the general education 
needs of the student. A minor in computer science can be designed to complement a 
student's program. A flexible computer science major meets the needs of students with 
a number of different interests. 

The Computer Science Major: In recent years this major has equipped many students 
to step into a broad spectrum of jobs in the computer industry. The degree features a core 
of courses designed to provide a solid foundation in theoretical computer science as well 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 93 

as practical programming experience. After finishing the core, students choose from 
several optional senior level tracks that give an individual focus to the major. At present 
students may choose from tracks in Application System Development, Computer 
Systems, Knowledge-Based Systems, Scientific Computing, and Large Software System 
Development. A variety of internships and cooperative education placements provide 
students with opportunities for practical experience in the discipline. 

Important Note: In August of 1991 the computer science major was accredited by the 
Computer Science Accreditation Commission (CSAC) making the Armstrong program 
the second accredited program in the state. (The first accredited program in the state is 
housed at Georgia Institute of Technology). The Computer Science Accreditation Com- 
mission is an agent of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CS AB), a specialized 
accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary 
Accreditation (CORPA). 

Co-ops and Internships: Students are able to compete for cooperative education 
positions and internships at major Savannah employers such as Gulfstream and Savan- 
nah Foods. Such positions provide students invaluable opportunities to acquire practical 
experience that complements their classroom experience. 

Special Academic Regulations: 

To earn the BS degree with a major in computer science, a student must successfully 
complete with a grade of 'C or better all mathematics and computer science courses 
required in the program of study. To fulfill the prerequisites for any computer science 
course one must obtain a grade of 'C (or above) in each prerequisite course except 
MATH 1111.

The Department of Government embraces the ideal of liberal education and views it 
as an enlargement of education in related professional areas. As such, all departmental 
programs and courses are conceptually based so that students will develop the theoreti- 
cal sophistication to understand and manage the practical realities of the field. 

The Department also believes that instructional effectiveness, public service, and 
scholarly activity are inseparable complements to this curricular integrity. The Depart- 
ment encourages original research by both faculty and students, and supports the 
enterprise of service through such vehicles as the University's Public Service Center. It 
is to serve these ends that the Department of Government selects highly qualified 
educators on the basis of solid academic and professional credentials. 

On the AASU campus, the Department offers three associate degree programs in 
criminal justice (one with peace officer certification), bachelor and master of science 
degrees in that criminal justice, and a bachelor of arts in political science, with the 
opportunity for teacher certification or a concentration in public administration. Crimi- 
nal justice programs are also offered in Liberty County; bachelor programs in both 
criminal justice and political science are offered at the Brunswick Center at Georgia 
Coastal Community College. All department majors are required to take an exit exami- 
nation (the Area Concentration Achievement Test for their respective field) prior to 
graduation. 

Majors in Criminal Justice 

Both undergraduate and graduate programs are offered in criminal justice. Students 
may pursue Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees in law enforcement, law 
enforcement with P.O.S.T. certification, or corrections. Majors interested in the associate 
degree with peace officer certification must also contact the Regional Criminal Justice 
Training Center located on campus. The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice (B. S.C.J.) 
is available on campus, at the Liberty Center, and at the Brunswick Center. In addition, 
the Master of Science in Criminal Justice (M. S.C.J.) is offered on campus and at Liberty 
County.

The History Major 

The major in history may take either of two forms: History per se or History with Broad 
Field Certification. The latter prepares and credentials graduates to teach at the second- 
ary level in both public and private institutions. The former prepares graduates for entry 
level employment in such areas as government, public and /or community service, and 
business as well as to pursue graduate study in the field of history and other professional 
programs (law or business). 

Students who major in history are required to complete six semester hours of a foreign 
language sequence, or demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language offered by the 
University through the intermediate level one. Students should begin their language 
sequence as soon as possible and certainly not later than their junior year. Students 
should plan their programs of study carefully in consultation with a faculty advisor and 
students who change majors, or who transfer, may find it necessary to enroll beyond the 
traditional eight semesters if the degree requirements including foreign language cannot 
be fulfilled within that time. 

In addition to meeting minimum requirements for either program, students contem- 
plating graduate work in history are strongly advised to continue their linguistic study 
beyond the 2001 level. Students with a double major, where computer science is a 
language choice, may substitute computer science for a foreign language requirement in 
history. 

Either form of the major requires HIST 4500 (Methods), HIST 4900 or 4910, 4920 or 
4930 (Seminar), and HIST 4960 or 4970 (Historiography). In choosing the remainder of 
their advanced courses students may choose to concentrate in one particular area of 
History (e.g. European, American, or Non-Western), providing they diversify to the 
extent of completing at least six hours outside that area. 

The B.A. History major is offered both day and evening hours on the AASU campus, 
and in the evenings at the Brunswick Center (Georgia Coastal Community College) - 
except for HIST 4500, HIST 4960 and 4970, and the Seminars listed above. These 
requirements must be completed on campus. The B.G.S. with a History concentration is 
fully available at both locations. 

Honors in History 

See HIST 1192 - Honors Civilization II - for detailed information. 
See HIST 4990 - Senior Thesis in History for detailed information 
Also see University Honors Program 

Scholarships in History 

Limited scholarship aid is available annually. Interested students are invited to 
inquire in the department office for details.

Minor Concentrations 

The Department of History offers a number of minor concentrations. 

A minor in History has great practical value. Its notation on the transcript indicates 
to an employer that the applicant has some solid liberal arts background with its 
accompanying insight into the development and functioning of modern society, and that 
the applicant has made an extra effort to refine research and writing skills so essential to 
dealing with that society. Whatever the major one chooses, such a minor will strengthen 
the student's academic record. 

Students who hope to work in history-related fields upon graduation should consider 
adding a minor in Public History, or in Historical Archaeology. Through these programs 
unique opportunities are provided for qualified students to gain practical experience 
while making a realistic assessment of the possibilities offered by their field of interest. 
Cooperative arrangement with Historic Savannah Foundation, Georgia Historical Soci- 
ety, Savannah Landmark Project, Oatland Island Center, and with a number of museums 
and historical sites, such as Telfair Academy, Ft. Pulaski, Juliette Low Center, Wormsloe 
Plantation, and Ft. King George, permit placement of students in positions relating to: (a) 
archival and manuscript curation, (b) historic site administration and interpretation, (c) 
museum studies, (d) historic preservation, and (e) historical archaeology. 

Additional minor concentrations are offered jointly with the Department of Govern- 
ment in International Studies and Russian Studies. 

Minors, in addition to grades of 'C or better in each course, require the following: 
A. History 15 hours 

Appropriate lower division survey course 

Fifteen hours of 3000 or 4000 level HIST courses

English Composition 

Entering students should begin the required English core sequence in their initial 
semester of attendance. Students must not delay beginning this sequence beyond their 
second semester of attendance. Students must enroll in the appropriate course in the core 
sequence and do so each semester until they complete the sequence and pass the Regents 
Test. ENGL 1101, 1102, and 2100 courses may not be dropped without permission of the 
Department Head. Students who do drop these courses without Department Head's 
approval will receive a failing grade in the class. 

Exemptions from Core English 

Students who wish credit exemption for ENGL 1101 must take the CLEP Freshman 
College Composition (with Essay) examination and make a score of 49 (grade equivalent 
of a 'B') and pass the essay portion of the test. Students who wish a credit exemption for 
English 1102 must take the CLEP Analysis and Interpretation of Literature and Essay 
examination and make a score of 55 (Grade equivalent of 'B') and pass the essay portion 
of the test. Students who score a '3' or higher on the AP exam (English: Literature and 
Composition or Literature and Composition), or who win an NCTE Writing Award, will 
have their ENGL 1101 requirement waived and will automatically gain entrance into 
ENGL 1102H. These students are strongly urged to complete their remaining graduation 
hours by subsequently enrolling in English 2100H and an upper-level writing class such 
as ENGL 3720 (Technical and Business Communication) or ENGL 4700 (Advanced 
Composition). 



1 08 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 

English Composition Transfer Credit 

Transfer students from outside the University System of Georgia who have not yet 
completed the required English composition (ENGL 1101, 1102) should arrange a 
placement interview through the department office. The interviewer will evaluate 
student transcripts for English credits, administer the English Placement Test (if neces- 
sary), provide information on the composition sequence and the Georgia Regents Test, 
and determine placement in the appropriate composition course. 

Foreign Languages 

Students who, while enrolled at Armstrong Atlantic State University, take their 
foreign language courses on another campus must pass an appropriate national stan- 
dardized test with a score not lower than the 60 percentile on each part to receive credit

The Department of Mathematics offers a wide range of services to the A ASU student. 
Several introductory courses are available both to satisfy the general education needs of 
the student and to satisfy prerequisites in the student's major program. Intermediate- 
level courses for non-majors are available to enhance the quantitative skills of students 
in a variety of different disciplines. A minor in mathematics can be designed to 
complement the rest of a student's program. A major in the mathematical sciences allows 
the students to choose from among three options. 

The Mathematical Sciences Major: Option 1 of this major is entitled 'Mathematics' 
and prepares students intending to pursue graduate studies in mathematics. Option 2 is 
entitled 'Applied Mathematics'. This flexible option is a good choice for students 
preparing for a variety of careers in business and industry, intending to attend graduate 
school in a quantitative area such as biostatistics, economics, or operations research, or 
wishing to participate in a Dual-Degree Program in engineering Option 3 is entitled 
'Mathematics Education' and prepares students to teach in public and private secondary 
schools. This option is an approved program for the Georgia Teacher's Professional Four 
Year Certificate (T-4). 

The Dual Degree Program: Under arrangements with Georgia Tech, students may in 
five years of study earn simultaneously the BS degree in the mathematical sciences from 
Armstrong and the Bachelor's degree in any one of a number of fields of engineering 
from Georgia Tech. Armstrong participates in similar programs with other major 
universities. Students considering this option should contact an advisor in the Depart- 
ment of Mathematics as soon as possible. 

Special Academic Regulations: 

To earn the BS degree in the mathematical sciences, a student must successfully 
complete with a grade of C or better all mathematics and computer science courses 
required in the program of study.

The Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences offers two 4-year degrees, the Bachelor 
of Arts with a major in Psychology and the Bachelor of Arts with a major in Economics, 
and also minor concentrations in Anthropology, Economics, Mental Health, Organiza- 
tional Psychology, Psychology, and Sociology. 

The Psychology program is based in the research tradition and offers preparation for 
both graduate school and entry into the job market. Besides specific courses required for 
the degree, students select from a variety of content courses which include clinical, 
developmental, testing, personality, physiological, social and industrial /organizational 
psychology. During the senior year, capstone courses include research projects, commu- 
nity internships, and senior seminar. Studies have shown that Psychology majors have 
the opportunity to develop strengths in five important areas: critical thinking, problem 
solving, oral communication, written communication, and interpersonal skills. 

The Economics program is consistent with the liberal arts tradition, requiring a 
foundation in economic theory along with eight applied courses from a variety of areas. 
These areas include courses related to international economics, financial markets, public 
policy issues, regional and international development, quantitative applications, intern- 
ships and special research topics. With the highest paid major among social sciences, 
graduates in economics may find positions in business, government, and consulting 
ranging from management and marketing to research and analysis. Opportunities exist 
for internship and research experience. 

Along with other academic policies of the college, candidates for the B.A. degrees in 
Psychology and Economics must earn at least a 'C in every required course in the major. 
All division minors require a 'C or better in each course. 

Honors programs are available for both Economics and Psychology. The Division 
recognizes student achievement by awarding the Stu Worthington Award for academic 
achievement and the Cindy McCormick Award for Outstanding Service to senior psychol- 
ogy students. The Award for Outstanding Achievement is awarded to a senior Economics 
student.

- to participate in experiences that will assist the prospective teacher with future 
decisions concerning teaching as a career, 

- to become acquainted with the organization and curriculum of a particular school. 
The pre-planning practicum is scheduled at the beginning of the public school term 

and should be scheduled during the student's junior or senior year. No credit is given for 
the pre-planning practicum, but this practicum is a requirement in all of the teaching 
fields in the Armstrong Atlantic State University Teacher Education Program.

School of Health Professions Statement of Professional Standards 
Related to Applicants and Students 

All applicants to and students enrolled in the School of Health Professions must meet 
and continue to meet the approved professional standards of the School and respective 
programs. 

1. In order to meet the intellectual, physical and social competencies necessary to meet 
professional requirements, all applicants and students must possess the needed 
physical attributes, and exhibit qualities of good judgment, mental strength and 
emotional stability. 

2. No applicant who may jeopardize the health and / or the well being of a patient, client, 
coworker, or self, may be accepted into the School of Health Professions program or 
continue as a student within a program. 

3. Presentation of the professional self is a vital part of the complex relationship among 
the client, the health care provider, and the health care delivery site. To enhance the 
client /provider relationship, and to preclude non-admittance to the clinical areas, the 
School of Health Professions limits the attire and adornments (e.g. clothing, jewelry, 
piercing, tattooing) of the body and its parts (e.g. hands, hair, face, and oral cavity). 
See the policies of the respective departments for the enforcement of the school-wide 
policy. 

4. The individual programs will inform each applicant in writing of the technical 
standards which are related to the professional duties of the discipline. 

5. The faculty of each program or department shall be responsible for applying the 
standards for their students and prospective students. 

6. In all cases, final appeal may be brought to the attention of the Dean of Health 
Professions who would appoint an Appeals committee. 

Insurance 

Because of contractual requirements, A completed Health History and Health 
Insurance is required of students in Dental Hygiene, Medical Technology, Nursing, 
Physical Therapy, Radiologic Technologies, and Respiratory Therapy. Malpractice/ 
Liability Insurance is required of students in Dental Hygiene, Medical Technology, 
Nursing, Physical Therapy, Radiologic Technologies, and Respiratory Therapy. 

Limits on Admission to Health Professions Programs 

There are many more students applying for admission to these programs than we 
have spaces available. Therefore, 

1. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CONTACT THE PROGRAM OF YOUR CHOICE 
FOR ADVISEMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE 

2. Admission to Armstrong Atlantic State University and / or completion of prerequisite 
courses do /does not guarantee you admission to a Health Professions program. 
Because each program has its own admission criteria and procedure for admission, 
students must apply to the particular programs they wish to enter. 

3. NO MORE THAN TWO (2) SCIENCE COURSES MAY BE REPEATED, and that NO 
ONE COURSE MAY BE REPEATED MORE THAN ONCE. If a student fails a course 
a second time, he/she will not be eligible for admission to the health programs for 
which this course is a requirement. 

4. ONLY STUDENTS MAKING SATISFACTORY PROGRESS toward admission to or 
in an Armstrong Atlantic State University health program will be assigned a science 
seat.

The overall mission of the Bachelor of Health Science program is to make available an 
educational opportunity for persons interested in entering a health field and an academic 
program for experienced health professionals who wish to further their career opportu- 
nities. More specifically, the objectives of the program are: 

1 . To prepare students with the knowledge that behavioral change can occur through 
education; 

2. To prepare students to foster health, health promotion, and disease prevention; 

3. To provide the opportunity for students to gain expertise in the health related areas 
of health promotion /education, administration, nursing and allied health profes- 
sions, or athletic training. 

The emphasis of the curriculum is to view "health" as different from "illness" and to 
teach new students and practicing health professionals of this difference. The curriculum 
will permit the student to earn a baccalaureate degree that reflects expertise in health 
science while focusing on an applied health related area. Upon graduation, these health 
professionals will implement the concepts they have learned and direct the efforts of the 
public in the promotion, enhancement, and maintenance of health and in the prevention 
of health problems.

The Armstrong Atlantic State University baccalaureate nursing program offers 
entering freshmen and transfer students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in 
Nursing Degree. The American Nurses Association (ANA) and the National League for 
Nursing (NLN) have adopted a position statement calling for the baccalaureate degree 
in nursing as the academic preparation for professional nursing practice. Graduates are 
prepared to provide comprehensive nursing care for people in a variety of settings. The 
BSN degree also provides the foundation for graduate education in nursing. 

The program is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing and is fully accredited by 
the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission * (NLNAC). Graduates must 
meet all legal requirements for licensure as established by the State Board of Nursing in 
order to be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for 
licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).

Lander, Jennifer Tucker, Debbie 

* Graduate Faculty with full status 

Physical therapy is a health care profession based upon scientific knowledge and 
principles whose practitioners evaluate, diagnose, treat, and instruct persons of all ages 
with movement disorders. Evaluation, diagnosis and treatment planning requires the 
ability to critically analyze a large number of factors, determine the most important of 
those factors and develop a treatment plan based on that analysis. Physical therapists 
must effectively communicate their findings to the clients, the clients' families, other 
health care providers and the agencies that reimburse the clients and /or the physical 
therapists for the physical therapy service. Physical therapists must provide care in a 
compassionate, competent, legal and ethical manner. A major aspect of physical therapy 
care is the prevention of injuries and disabilities and communicating these plans to the 
client. 

To meet the needs of the physical therapy profession, all course work in this program 
is clinical case-centered with the emphasis on problem identification and problem 
solving. This allows students to integrate the pathophysiology, evaluation methods, 
treatment approaches and psychosocial principles into each case. Students are encour- 
aged to seek new solutions to the clinical problems and propose new treatment approaches. 
Active learning promotes independent thinking. Students learn to seek and confirm 
answers on their own rather than relying on faculty to give them answers. This pattern 
of independent learning develops in the student a goal of life-long learning. Active 
learning methods develop self-reliance and an increase in self assessment skills. 

By working in small groups, students develop a respect and understanding for the 
problem solving skills and clinical solutions developed by their classmates. Small group 
activities promote the development of teamwork and leadership skills. Clinical labora- 
tories and clinical practice experiences in the curriculum are designed to foster the 
development of intellectual and physical competencies and strong professional values. 

The central principle in the department's educational philosophy is that the primary 
role of the instructor is as a facilitator of learning, not as the source of knowledge. The 



160 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 

I department will provide a supportive environment in which students take responsibil- 
ity for their own learning. The Department fosters mutual respect between faculty and 
students, between students and their classmates and between students and other health 
care professionals. The Department promotes a respect and understanding for all 
individuals regardless of their cultural background. 

Accreditation Status and Degrees Offered 

The Department of Physical Therapy is accreditation by the Commission on Accredi- 
tation of Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE). The Program received initial accreditation 
in Spring, 1997. 

The Georgia Board of Physical Therapy Legal Requirements 

Graduation from an accredited professional physical therapy education program 
allows students to take the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). Passing this 
exam is required for licensure in any jurisdiction within the United States and its 
territories. The Georgia Board of Physical Therapy has the authority to refuse or revoke 
licensure to an applicant upon a rinding by the board that the applicant has been 
convicted of any felony, crime involving moral turpitude, or crime violating any state, 
federal or comparable jurisdictional law including laws relating to controlled substances 
or dangerous drugs. This applies to any conviction or pleas of nolo contendere entered to 
the charge in the courts of this state, any other state, territory, or country or in the federal 
courts of the United States. 

Pre-Physical Therapy Options 

There are three pre-physical therapy options: Biology major Pre-Physical Therapy 
track, Health Science major Pre-Physical Therapy track, and the Pre-Physical Therapy 
track of the Department of Physical Therapy. Enrollment in any of these pre-physical 
therapy tracks at Armstrong Atlantic State University does not guarantee admission to 
the physical therapy major. 

Pre-Physical Therapy track in the Biology major. As part of the Biology major Pre- 
Physical Therapy track, students take the Armstrong Atlantic State University and 
Biology core courses as well as courses which meet the prerequisite needs of the Physical 
I herapy Program. If accepted into the Physical Therapy Program, students in this track 
will complete the first two semesters of work in the physical therapy program as part of 
the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. If not accepted to the 
Physical Therapy Program, the student can complete their senior year in one of the other 
tracks in Biology ^nd graduate with the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. This track 
is recommended for those students whose interests lay in the basic sciences. 

Pre-Physical Therapy track within the Health Science major. As part of the Health 
Sdence major Pre-Physical rherapy track, students take the Armstrong Atlantic State 
University ^nd Health Science core courses as well as the prerequisite courses for the 
Physical Therapy Program. It accepted into tin 1 Physical Therapy Program, students in 
this track will complete the first two se m e st ers of work in the physical therapy program 

as pari ot the requirements tor a Bachelor Of 1 lealth Science degree. It not accepted to the 

Physic al I herapy Program, the student can complete their senior year in one of the other 
tracks in 1 lealth S< ience and graduate with the Bachelor of Health Science degree. This 
track is recommended for those students whoso interests lay in the areas of health 
promotion or health administration. 

Pre-Physical rherapy major within thfl Physical Therapy Department. As part of 
this major, students take the Armstrong .Atlantic state Uni\ ersity ^nd Physical Therapy 
- oursesand the prerequisite courses and electives required by the Physical rherapy 
Program. It accepted into the Physical rherapy Program, students in this track will

requirements for a Bachelor ol Scien< • n Ph) si< al rherapy. If not accepted to the 






SCHOOL OF HEALTH PROFESSIONS 161 



Physical Therapy Program, the student must transfer to another major, rhis option is 

recommended only tor students who are transferring to Armstrong Atlantic State 
University without a degree whose academic record does not lend itself to either of the 
two other options. 

Admission Requirements 

See "Limits on Admission to Health Professions Programs" in the "Admissions" 
section oi this catalog. Students in the program must be admitted to Armstrong Atlantic 
State University prior to enrolling in the Physical Therapy Program. Students must meet 
the admission requirements of the Department of Physical Therapy to be eligible for 
admission to the physical therapy major. Admission to the Physical Therapy Program is 
a function of the physical therapy faculty. Students enrolled in the Physical Therapy 
Program graduate with the Master of Science degree. Students must complete the entire 
program including the Master of Science degree prior to sitting for the National Physical 
Therapy Examination (NPTE) and qualifying for licensure. 

Students may enter the program as either a graduate student or a senior undergradu- 
ate student. Students who are admitted to the Physical Therapy Program as 
undergraduates must meet all core and program requirements for an undergraduate 
degree at Armstrong Atlantic State University and the graduate record examination 
(GRE) prior to admission to the program. Upon completion of the first two semesters of 
the physical therapy professional courses (PHTH prefix), these students are admitted 
into the graduate school. Upon completion of the entire program these students are 
awarded the Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy and the Master of Science degrees. 
Armstrong Atlantic State University does not award a separate undergraduate degree in 
Physical Therapy. The Bachelor of Science degree is awarded only to students who have 
completed the entire Master of Science Degree Program. Students who are admitted to 
the Physical Therapy Program as graduate students will receive the Master of Science 
degree upon graduation. Sixty-five to seventy percent of students who are admitted to 
the PT Program have already completed an undergraduate degree. 

Applicants must obtain the most recent information and application packets from the 
Department of Physical Therapy or the Office of the School of Graduate Studies. The 
information packets are changed every year and contain the most updated information 
about the Physical Therapy Program including any changes in the program. Information 
in the information packet supersedes what is contained in this catalog. New information 
packets are available in March of the year preceding the application deadline (for 
example: for admission in 1999, the information packets are available in March, 1998). 
The application packets contain both the Physical Therapy Program and Armstrong 
Atlantic State University Applications and are available in October of each year. 
Deadline for application is January 15 of each year. 

Criteria for Application 

Application for admission criteria include: 

1. Effective oral and written communication skills. 

2. An understanding of the physical sciences so that students can comprehend 
physiological, pharmacological and biomechanical principles and integrate those 
principles into physical therapy practice. Minimal satisfaction of this criterion will 
include the completion of two termsot basic chemistry with labs and two terms of 
basic physics with labs (must include mechanics, electricity, magnetism ,\nd light ). 

3. An understanding of the functional and structural characteristics ol all human 
body systems so that students can comprehend pathology and dysfunction as they 
relate to physical therapy practice. Minimal satisfaction of this criterion will 
include the completion of two terms of anatomy and physiology with labs. These 
courses must be completed in a basic science department 

4. An understanding of individual and group human behavior.

of 400 verbal and 400 quantitative required for provisional admission.) 

Enrollment as a pre-physical therapy major at Armstrong Atlantic State University 
does not guarantee admission to the physical therapy major. Meeting the minimum 
criteria for application does not guarantee admission to the physical therapy major. It 
should be noted that the pool of applicants for the physical therapy program includes 
many highly qualified applicants, and the number of available positions is limited. 
Therefore, admission to the physical therapy program is highly competitive. 

Transfer applicants who wish to complete a bachelor's degree and pre-physical 
therapy majors at Armstrong Atlantic State University must complete the general 
education requirements (see core requirements) and completion of the Regents' Testing 
Program prior to beginning physical therapy courses. Transfer credit for prerequisite 
courses may be accepted for required core courses upon receiving approval from 
physical therapy faculty, the Department in which the course is taught at Armstrong 
Atlantic State University and the Office of the Registrar. 

After admission to the Physical Therapy Program, students must formally accept the 
position in the professional phase of the physical therapy curriculum and submit a non 
refundable $150.00 deposit to retain their position in the physical therapy program. This 
deposit is applied to the student's first quarter matriculation fee. 

Program Completion Requirements: 

Students must complete the physical therapy program within four consecutive years 
from the date of their initial admissions to the physical therapy major. Students who do 
not complete the program in the required period of time may apply for readmission. To 
qualify for readmission, there must be space in the class into which the former student 
is seeking admission. The former student must meet the current criteria for admission 
and be evaluated along with the other applicants to the program. 

Readmission Procedures: 

1. The student must complete the readmission application for Armstrong Atlantic 
State University and the physical therapy major. 

2. The student will be required to meet admission and curriculum requirements in 
effect at the time of application for readmission. 

3. The student's admission will be based upon space available in the class into which 
the she/he is seeking admission and recommendation of the Department faculty. 

4. The former student, who has failed out of the program because of an inability to 
meet the grade requirements (B in PHTH courses) or has been dismissed from the 
physical therapy program for any reason, is not eligible to apply for readmission. 

Progression Requirements 

To progress in the Physical Therapy Program, students must: 
1. earn a "B" or better in all PHTH courses. If less than the required grade is earned 
in a PHTH course, that course must be repeated. Only 1 course can be repeated and 






SCHOOL OF HEALTH PROFESSIONS 163 



that course can be repeated only once. A course can be repeated only when it is 
normally offered again in the curricular sequence. No additional courses can be 
taken in the Physical Therapy Curriculum until the course deficiency is satisfied. 
Thus, failure to pass a course will require the student to "drop back" to the next 
graduating class. 

2. be continuously enrolled in the Program through the entire 7 semester sequence of 
courses. Medical or personal leave may be granted but will also require the student 
to "drop back" to the next graduating class. 

3. maintain malpractice /liability and health /medical insurance and CPR/ First Aid 
certification. 

5. complete all courses in the physical therapy curriculum within four consecutive 
years from the date of their initial admissions to the physical therapy major. 
Students who do not complete the program in the required period of time may 
apply for readmission. 

6. obtain faculty permission to "drop back" for academic, medical or personal 
reasons. A student may re-enroll in PHTH courses only if the faculty have 
determined that space is available for that student. 

Failure to pass (a "B" or better in all PHTH courses) two or more PHTH courses will 
result in dismissal from the Program. Failure to pass a failed PHTH course on the second 
attempt will also result in dismissal from the Program. If the former student has failed 
out of the program because of an inability to meet the grade requirements, she/he is not 
eligible to apply for readmission.

*Graduate Faculty with full status 

Radiologic Sciences is a broad term describing the medical science of using radiation, 
radioactive substances, magnetism and sound waves to produce medical images and / 
or treat diseases under the prescription of a physician. There are four specialities in 
radiologic sciences: radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine and sonography. 
Two of these, radiography and radiation therapy, are currently offered at AASU. 
Radiography uses radiation and magnetism to produce medical images. Typical areas of 
radiography include: general bone and systems radiology, computed tomography, 
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and angiograms. Radiation therapy uses radiation 
to treat diseases - most often cancer. 

Department of Radiologic Sciences' Goals 

The goals of the Radiologic Sciences Department are as follows: 

1. Prepare empathetic, competent radiologic science professionals. 

2. Develop critical thinking practitioners who possess the knowledge and skill to 
function in a changing health care environment and shape practice through 
research and service. 

3. Increase professional awareness by developing new entry points for professional 
practice. 

Expand the scope of practice in the community by increasing professional awareness 
and developing new entry points for professional practice. 

Professional Insurance and Transportation 

Hospitals in the greater Savannah area are affiliated with AASU for the Clinical 
Education courses. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to 
the hospitals. 

Prior to matriculation through Clinical Education Courses, students are required to 
submit evidence of professional liability insurance, health insurance, CPR certification, 
and a physical examination. Specific information regarding these requirements will be 
distributed to students who are admitted.

The Learning Support Program is intended to serve students who are not prepared for 
core curriculum courses and need additional learning support in reading, mathematics, 
and English. Two categories of students may be served within the overall Learning 
Support Program, of which University System required learning support courses make 
up a significant component. First, students are required to take learning support courses 
when they fall below either the University System minimum requirements or Armstrong's 
minimum requirements on the CPE. Second, students may elect to take learning support 



286 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 

courses without penalty in order to prepare for the core. The department also adminis- 
ters the Regents' Remediation course in reading. 

Limited admission students must enroll in accordance with the stipulations of their 
admission (see the Limited Admission section of this catalog). Those entitled to Veterans 
Administration educational benefits may be certified for no more than 45 credit hours in 
departmental courses, if these courses are required for regular admission. At most, 15 
hours may be certified in each of the English, mathematics, and reading areas. 
If a required learning support student fails the same learning support course twice, then 
the student is subject to a one year suspension. If a student fails to complete requirements 
for a learning support area within three (3) attempts, the student will be suspended and 
may not be considered for readmission within three (3) years of suspension. Prior to 
suspension, the student may appeal to the departmental review committee for one 
additional course. An "attempt" occurs when a student receives any grade or symbol 
except "W" in a learning support course, whether required or voluntary. 

Students who are enrolled in or wish to register for required learning support courses 
must come to the Department of Learning Support for advisement.

Military Science Program (Army ROTC) 

Faculty 

Jones, Zane H., Captain, Department Head 

Tisdale, Kattie M. 
Pullins, Tommie L. 

The Army Department of Military Science is a Senior Division Reserve Officer 
Training Corps (ROTC), Instructor Group, staffed by active Army personnel. The 
department provides a curriculum available to Armstrong Atlantic State University and 
Savannah State University students that qualifies the college graduate for a commission 
as an officer in the United States Army, United States Army Reserve, or the United States 
National Guard. Qualifying for a commission adds an extra dimension to the student's 
employment capability in that, upon graduation from the university, the student has 
either military or civilian employment options. Enrollment in Military Science classes is 
open to all students. 

The course of study offered in military science is designed not only to prepare both 
the student for service as a commissioned officer in the United States Army but also to 
provide knowledge and practical experience in leadership and management that will be 
useful in any facet of society. Male and female students are eligible for enrollment. Each 
student is provided with a working knowledge of the organization and functioning of 
the Department of Defense and the role of the U.S. Army in national security and world 
affairs. 

The course of study pursued by students during their freshman and sophomore years 
is the basic military science course and /or related skill activities. The course of study 
normally pursued by students during their junior and senior years is the advanced 
military science course. 

For selection and retention in the advanced course, a student must be physically 
qualified, should have maintained above average military and academic standing, and 
must demonstrate a potential for further leadership development. 

Graduates of the advanced course are commissioned second lieutenants in the United 
States Army, United States Army Reserve, or the United States National Guard in the 
branch of service most appropriate to their interests and academic achievements, 
consistent with the needs of the Army. Regardless of the Branch selected, all officers will 
receive valuable experience in management, logistics and administration. Graduates 
may be granted a delay in reporting for duty for graduate study, if requested. A small 
number of outstanding students are designated Distinguished Military Graduates and 
are offered commissions in the Regular Army each year. 



288 ARMSTRONG ATLANTIC STATE UNIVERSITY 

Basic Military Science 

Basic military science courses involve four semesters during the freshman and 
sophomore years. The student learns leadership and management and acquires essential 
background knowledge of customs and traditions, weapons, map reading, tactics and 
survival. Equally important, these courses have the objective of developing the student's 
self-discipline, integrity and sense of responsibility. 

Advanced Military Science 

The general objective of this course of instruction is to produce junior officers who by 
education, training, attitude and inherent qualities are suitable for continued develop- 
ment as officers in the Army. There are two avenues available for the student to be eligible 
for entry into the advanced program and obtain a commission as a second lieutenant. 

(a) satisfactory completion of, or placement credit for, the basic program at Armstrong 
Atlantic or at any other school, college or university offering basic ROTC and 
meeting the entrance and retention requirements established by the Army. 

(b) to be an active duty veteran or junior ROTC cadet graduate eligible for placement 
credit. 

Placement 

Veterans entering the military science programs will receive appropriate placement 
credit for their active military service. Students who have completed military science 
courses in military preparatory schools or junior colleges may be given appropriate 
credit. Students with at least three years of high school ROTC may also be granted 
placement credit. Placement credit or four semesters of basic military science, or the 
equivalent thereof, is a prerequisite to admission into the advanced program. 

Alternate Programs for Admittance 

Students with two years of coursework remaining, but who have not completed basic 
military science, are eligible to be considered for selection into the advanced military 
science program. Those selected under the provisions of the two-year advanced program 
must satisfactorily complete a basic summer camp of six weeks duration prior to entering 
the advanced program. Students attending the basic camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky, are 
paid at active army rates and given a travel allowance from their home to camp and 
return. Attendance at Basic Camp is voluntary and incurs no military obligation until the 
student returns and decides to sign a contract to pursue a commission. 

Participating Students and Aliens 

Participating students are students who participate in Military Science courses but are 
not fully enrolled or are ineligible for enrollment in the ROTC programs. Participating 
and alien students may enroll in the Military Science classes provided they meet the 
requirements outlined in Army Regulations and are approved by the Department Head 
and /or school authorities. Although these students may enroll in military science 
classes, they may only participate in classroom instructions. They will not participate in 
any high risk training, drill, marching, leadership laboratories, field training exercises, 
voluntary programs, or attend basic or advanced camp. These students will also not be 
issued or wear the uniform, nor receive credit toward commissioning or enlisted grade 
status through completion of ROTC courses. 

Advanced Summer Camp 

Students contracting to pursue the advanced courses are required to attend advanced 
summer camp, normally between their junior and senior academic years at Fort Bragg, 
North Carolina. 



SPECIAL PROGRAMS 289 



Financial Assistance 

All contracted advanced course cadets are paid a subsistence allowance of $150 per 
month while enrolled in the advanced course. 

Scholarship Program 

Each year the U.S. Army awards two- and three-year scholarships to outstanding 
young men and women participating in the Army ROTC program who desire careers as 
Army officers. The Army pays tuition, fees, books and laboratory expenses incurred by 
the scholarship student. In addition, each student receives $150 per month for the 
academic year. The Savannah Volunteer Guards have established a full-tuition scholar- 
ship for qualified incoming freshmen enrolled in ROTC classes. No military obligation 
is incurred. The scholarship is for one year, with a possibility of renewal for the next 
school year. Individuals desiring to compete for these scholarships should apply to the 
Military Science Department. 

Army ROTC Uniforms, Books and Supplies 

Students enrolling in the Army ROTC program will be issued U.S. Army uniforms, 
books and supplies by the Military Science Department. No fees or deposits of any kind 
will be required. Uniforms must be returned before commissioning or upon disenrollment 
from the ROTC program. 

MILS Courses 

The basic course of four semester duration consists of two hours of instruction work 
per week. Students acquire knowledge of military leadership, weapons, tactics, basic 
military skills, and physical fitness. In field training exercises, potential for leadership is 
progressively developed. Basic course students are invited and encouraged to attend 
military science leadership laboratories and physical training sessions. 

The advanced course consists of three hours of classroom work and one hour of 
leadership laboratory per week. During the spring quarter prior to advanced camp the 
student will enroll in MILS 3302 to prepare for attendance at Advanced Camp. HIST 3570 
(American Military History) is normally taken spring semester of the senior year. The 
coursework during the advanced course emphasizes techniques and management and 
leadership and the fundamentals and dynamics of the military team. Field training 
exercises provide the student with applied leadership experiences. Participation in 
leadership laboratories and physical training sessions are mandatory. 

Professional Military Education (PME) Requirements 

The Army's Professional Military Education requirements are established to provide 
cadets with the training and enrichment necessary to successfully compete in the Army. 
In addition to completing a baccalaureate degree, the cadet must complete one under- 
graduate course from each of the five designed fields of study (Some of these requirements 
may be waived for nursing majors). The five PME designated fields of study are listed 
below and the courses that meet the Cadet Command PME requirement: 

A. Written Communications Skills: ENGL 1101, ENGL 1102, and ENGL 1102H 

B. Human Behavior: PSYS 1101, SOCI 1101, HIST 1111, HIST 1112, and ANTH 1101.
